Decline of Rural America
After viewing the required video for this discussion, pick one of the following overlapping issues highlighted in this week’s readings to discuss:
- How does the corporatization of farming affect all Americans, not just those living in rural areas? What can you do about this?
- What is brain drain and what are its long-reaching effects on rural communities? Be sure to include the terms stayers and achievers in your discussion. How could the community leaders make staying more attractive than leaving?
- Describe the positive and negative impacts of the growth of mega-cities. Will moving back to the country solve the social problems created by our move to the urban areas?
