    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.
