On Dec. 13, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) held its first-ever virtual rural summit to address the intricate challenges and opportunities within rural education. Through engaging sessions with national experts, the event provided participants with valuable insights and strategies to navigate the unique landscape of rural education. 

In conjunction with the summit, NSBA released a new report on rural schools to increase the awareness that rural students, families, and communities deserve a voice in policymaking decisions and an investment in their educational infrastructures.
