Collaboration Begins With Trust

Brad Mitchel, managing director of innovation at Battelle for Kids, discusses the importance of collaboration to move rural education forward. "The key to collaboration is trust," he says. 

Last year, Battelle for Kids partnered with Education Northwest to study 17 of the most promising rural education collaboratives across the country to learn how they are advancing equity, economic growth, and educational change for rural students and communities. Our research and lessons learned are detailed in a new white paper, Generating Opportunity and Prosperity: The Promise of Rural Education Collaboratives. Download the paper now.
