National Forum to Advance Rural Education

Program Dates 
November 11 - 12, 2021

Indianapolis, IN (hybrid) - Over the past year, rural schools, educators, and communities have risen to the challenge of supporting our students and each other during the pandemic—oftentimes, thinking outside of the box to leverage new ideas, utilize existing strengths, share services, and protect everyone’s health and safety. This year’s event theme is Raising Rural: A Fair Chance for a Good Life, which will explore the following three questions:

How can rural living be more economically and environmentally sustainable?
How can rural learning be more relevant and valuable personally, locally and globally?
How can rural places be more inclusive and less divisive when they address racial, ethnic, class and gender equity issues?
By leading together, we can help communities innovate and leverage local assets to create meaningful learning experiences for rural students.
