The hearts and minds of Appalachian children have long been in the competent hands of female educators. These teachers are entrusted with the responsibility of preparing children to be well-integrated adults with the competence to play a productive role in society. Appalachian women have always faced obstacles, but many have overcome them because of the opportunities provided by education. Rampant poverty continues to present severe challenges for Appalachian schools, which are vulnerable to changes in regional and national economies brought about by setbacks in both personal and community life. The author argues that additional resources must be provided to families and schools for student success. In Appalachian Women, Professor Atwell offers effective strategies for school achievement.
