Eric Johnston, president of the Motion Picture Association of America told the American Farm Bureau Federation in Chicago last December, "A few years ago our Department of Agriculture entitled its yearbook, 'Farmers in a Changing World.' That was a good title, but I think a better one would have been 'A World of Changing Farmers.'" As teachers and instructors of students from rural communities we are part of this world of changing farmers here in the United States. Since the time and example of the Master Teacher, Jesus Christ, the best teachers have known about the environment in which they have worked and have used it in their teaching. Many changes in rural life are interesting from a psychological point of view as they influence the student and his learning. The changes in rural life I will consider are those changes in the farm population and in rural community living which have some psychological implications.
