Rural Schools in a Time of Polarization

Mar 5, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

It is undeniable that there is an increasing polarization between urban and rural places with implications for equity and the world that young people are inheriting. Since 2021, a group of innovative rural district leaders have been working to elevate trends and use them as one input to radically change their school models. Join us to explore these trends in demographics, culture, health, employment and more & hear how leaders engaged communities to transform learning for students.
