Casting Our Vision Part 2: When it comes to education, rural matters. Today 1 in 3 Tennesseans attend a rural school, comprising nearly 300,000 students (NCES, 2018). Rural schools are spread throughout Tennessee’s 95 counties, in areas with varied levels of both poverty and economic opportunity. On average, these schools serve smaller numbers of students, which can limit funding and reduce their ability to offer diverse types of programs or serve all of their students well. Join us for the second installment of our Cast Our Vision series.
