ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study by the 1986 Commission on the Future of the South on the need for improving the schools and colleges in the Southern part of the U.S. William F. Winter, former Governor of Mississippi and chairman of the commission, said that the South continues to spend below the national average per pupil, has higher rates of adult functional illiteracy and reports lower scores on college entrance exams, which have contributed to the crippling of its economic competitiveness.
