Presentation Information

Communities play an integral part in childhood education. Learning takes place not only behind the four walls of a classroom but also in the families’ homes, schools, and workplaces throughout the community. Thirty years ago, before the age of social media, communities and schools were well connected, and there was a great sense of pride in rural education. Now, in a season of distractions and challenges, it has never been more important to reconnect schools with communities. In our presentation, we’ll share case studies from rural Minnesota educators and highlight how to rebuild partnerships to revitalize pride in rural education once again.
