Abstract: Contemporary countryside faces a lot of problems, and social cultural are among them. Due to social reasons the cultural differences among rural population become deeper and more evident The differences are determinated by the decline of rural role and deagrarization. Up to the present Human rural resources are perceived in a narrow sense. Official documents of Lithuania and real policy of rural development reflect it. Knowledge-based society can not treat people only as labour force and rural development can not be understood only as a measure of rural economic progress. In that case, intellectual rural development is neglected. The people's needs are not declared but they do exist. The countryside and its population perform not only industrial function but ecological, recreational, cultural, political and other functions too. A significant indicator in the context of knowledge-based society is the education of rural people. The number of rural population is declining, the death-rate exceeds birthrate, the countryside is ageing. The quantity of rural human resources is declining, so, this process must be compensated by their quality. However, the level of rural people's education is incongruous with demands of information society. It lags fer behind the education of urban population. Moreover, the inequality under some parameters is even increasing. Rural infrastructure of culture and education lose their role due to the decreasing number of rural population. The poverty of a large majority of rural people hampers the growth of cultural and educational needs. It impedes IT development too. The rural development of Lithuania policy needs adjustment
