NREA is conducting a diversity study and wants YOUR participation. Please follow the link below to complete the survey. NREA wants to hear from a variety of voices, so I hope that you will take a few moments to participate (it took me about 15 minutes to complete).

Please complete the survey by Nov. 16, 2017 to ensure your voice is heard!

Sometimes you have to think outside the box when looking for data on rural places. One resource I use is the hunger atlas. It breaks down demographics by county and is a good supplement to testing data, etc. Where you find them varies state by state, but I think most states have some version of this. I got information on how to find Missouri's from some extension people.

What are some out of the box resources you use?

Hello all. Attached is the Status of Rural Education report from 2007. It contains the rating system used by NCES to classify rural schools. As I said yesterday, this rating system has problems, which you can and should address in your dissertation. I believe (and my committee believes) that it is the best "standard" way to classify rural schools for now.
