Sunshine was a bedroom community because it had a rural population, was located in a rural municipality, and exhibited many of the social propensities commonly associated with a rural community.
To assist in describing the association between community involvement in school and the social networks existing or lacking within a bedroom community, I asked participants to identify types of community involvement they deemed as important.
As mentioned above, community involvement in school held great potential to strengthen the social cohesion of the community; however, in many ways, Sunshine's status as a bedroom community also limited the social cohesion of the community.
