The Rural Education National Forum was created to bring rural education leaders together to help reshape the rural economy, enrich the quality of life, own the future of learning, and prepare communities to be successful in a highly competitive, complex, and ever-changing world.
In partnership with the Ohio Department of Education and the Kentucky Department of Education, Battelle for Kids is pleased to host the third annual Rural Education National Forum, an interactive learning and collaborative experience for rural leaders.
The 2015 Rural Forum is designed to:
- Contribute to the growing momentum of the 2013 and 2014 Forums, and encourage participation in the emerging voice for rural education
- Share powerful examples of rural investment and innovation positively impacting student growth and achievement
- Foster collaboration among rural leaders around best practices, and learn how to practically integrate strategies, ideas, and policies in your own district and community
- Create opportunities for partnerships to leverage rural strengths to further impact and improve rural education
