RSP aligns with Rural Schools Collaborative, regional teachers receive grants

We’re so pleased to be working closely again on rural education issues with our former president, Dr. Gary Funk, who now heads the Rural Schools Collaborative. Funk, who led the creation of ourRural Schools Partnership program, is working on a larger scale across the Midwest in particular, as today’s column in the Springfield News-Leader details. Rural education needs all the advocates it can get, and we’re convinced that an alliance between the two programs will be a great resource for students, educators, administrators, education foundation leaders and others committed to maintaining strong rural schools.
