AASA is excited to partner with the Rural School and Community Trust next Monday, April 3, for the release of their biannual report, Why Rural Matters 2015-2016: Understanding the Changing Landscape. It will be held from 3:00PM – 4:00 PM EST  in 203-202 Senate Visitor’s Center (SVC) U.S. Capitol Building.  

Why Rural Matters 2015-2016:  Understanding the Changing Landscape, published by the Rural School and Community Trust is the eighth in a series of biennial research reports analyzing the contexts and conditions of rural education in each of the 50 states and calling attention to the need for policymakers to address rural education issues at the local, state, and federal levels. 

Next week's event will include introductory remarks by Robert Mahaffey, Executive Director of the Rural School and Community Trust and a panel by a team of researchers from the University of Central Florida, Eastern Mennonite University, and Ohio University. 

We will make a copy of the report available here following its release.
