Make Rural Education a Topic of Discussion at HGSE.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, rural public schools are responsible for the education of more than one-quarter of American students. That’s over 12 million kids whose rural experiences are directly linked to educational attainment and economic outcomes that shape their rest of their lives. Rural schools face unique educational challenges that deserve our attention and must be addressed through an institutional commitment to research, policy, and practice.
With a mission to prepare transformative leaders in education to improve student opportunity, achievement, and success, HGSE operates on the belief that innovative education has the power to improve lives and create a more just and prosperous society. Unfortunately, issues in rural education are neglected at HGSE. Currently, there are few resources for rural educators or students and little attention given to issues in rural education. As one of the world’s leading educational institutions, Harvard has an obligation to students in rural communities.
If you believe that your zip code shouldn’t determine the quality of your education…
If you believe that every child and every classroom should be considered…
If you believe that good schools are the heart of a thriving community…
Please sign our petition to show your support and make rural education a topic of discussion at HGSE!
