Last Updated: September 18, 2014

Battelle for Kids asserts that college and career readiness is achieved in rural schools through a focus on increasing academic preparation, accessibility, and aspiration. The Rural Education National Forum offers a unique opportunity to advance conversations around rural education and prosperity through collaborative action.

This year's Forum is designed to:


  • Contribute to the growing momentum from the 2013 Forum, and encourage participation in the emerging voice for rural education;
  • Build opportunities for collaboration/networking to leverage rural strengths to improve rural prosperity;
  • Learn from powerful national examples of successful rural innovation; and
  • Focus on ways to connect learning, living, and livelihood for the revitalization of rural communities.
