How rural schools can overcome reduced resources
from District Administration Magazine
The "dire inequity" in resources that students in rural schools face requires immediate action from state and federal lawmakers, according to a new "Why Rural Matters 2018-2019" report from The Rural School and Community Trust. Nearly 7.5 million students attended rural schools last year, with about 1 in 6 living below the poverty line, the report found. Rural student achievement remains very low in some states. Only 9.5% of the nation's rural students passed Advanced Placement courses in 2018-2019, compared with 18.8% of urban students and 24.1% of suburban students, according to the report.
