Department of Education issues report on rural schools

The U.S. Department of Education has issued a required Report on Rural Education outlining "actions the department will take to meaningfully increase the involvement of rural schools and school districts in helping develop and execute department processes, procedures, policies and regulations," the agency said. The report was mandated by Congress in 2015.

The report's conclusion says in part, "Rural students constitute approximately one-fifth of the nation’s students, representing a diverse array of experiences and circumstances. Rural education is a vitally important area of the education landscape involving virtually every aspect of the Department of Education’s work. The Department is committed to helping provide rural students with the same opportunities for access, achievement, and success as their counterparts in other locales."
