"In this second episode of our series 'Do the Math-Calculating the Future of Rural Education,' Michelle talks with Taylor McCabe-Juhnke, Executive Director of the Rural Schools Collaborative (RSC). Taylor proudly hails from a long line of rural educators. As an early supporter of the RSC, Taylor was largely responsible for planning and coordinating the Rural Teacher Corps Stakeholder's Summit Visioning Meeting. This event continues to shape RSC's ongoing work with rural teacher preparation efforts nationwide.
During this conversation, Taylor, a fierce education advocate, highlighted RSC's commitment to creating sustainable rural communities by focusing on place, teachers, and philanthropy. Taylor shares the necessity of collaboration and networking, the impact rural serving organizations have on education, programming, and strategies addressing the rural teacher shortage, the need for investment at a local and national level in rural education, and the importance of showcasing the critical role rural educators play in shaping our future."
