Feb 05, 2010

RuralHSReportCoverOn February 5, the Alliance released Current Challenges and Opportunities in Preparing Rural High School Students for Success in College and Careers, a new report that is intended to give federal policymakers a detailed understanding of the challenges facing rural high schools as well as the inherent assets that rural schools bring to the national education reform debate.

The report notes that current federal education policies and research tend to favor urban and suburban high schools with the largest student populations and pay too little attention to the unique needs and circumstances of rural high schools. As a result, high schools-and high school students-in too many rural communities are in trouble.
