Register now for the 2022 National Forum to Advance Rural Education!

Over the past two years rural schools, educators, and communities have risen to the challenge of supporting our students and each other during the pandemic - often times, thinking outside of the box to leverage new ideas, utilize existing strengths, share services, and protect everyone’s health and safety. This year’s event theme will build upon last year’s theme, Raising Rural: A Fair Chance for a Good Life, which will explore creative and cooperative action around three strands: community, agency, and creativity.
