Help Shape the National Rural Education Policy Agenda

Last Updated: January 02, 2009

The Rural Trust would like your input on a set of position papers on national rural education policy that have been drafted over the past year by rural education activists from across the country. You can read and comment on any or all of the papers at

Topics include:

  • Student success
  • School funding
  • Environmental policy
  • Community revitalization
  • Curriculum and Instruction

The papers are part of the process of developing a National Rural Education Policy Agenda from the grassroots up, a process that was launched at the 2008 Rural Education Working Group Conference in Tuskegee, Alabama.

For the next two months Rural Trust will be seeking comments on the papers.

Each of the five committees will review comments and consider changes before finalizing their report. If you want to join the committee, just say so in your comment.

The reports will be presented and debated at the 2009 REWG meeting April 19-21 Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
