(DC) Rural Education in America: Challenges and Promise
December 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:45 pm EST
The 2016 election and its aftermath have forced the nation’s leaders to think anew about the needs of rural individuals, families, and communities. From the impact of the opioid epidemic to deindustrialization to a lack of infrastructure, rural schools and the tens of millions of American students who attend them face challenging and unique issues. And many of the reforms that have proven so successful in urban areas might not translate so easily to rural contexts.
Please join us for three panel discussions covering rural communities, school performance and politics, and policy implementation, featuring new research and expert analysis from contributors to a forthcoming volume on rural education in America.
