Rural Education with Jeff Hawkins and Campbell Scribner, Report Card with Nat Malkus

When discussing education, policymakers and reformers often focus on urban – and sometimes suburban – schools and communities. But rural schools educate about 20% of America’s students, and urban reforms may not translate well to their unique circumstances.

In this episode, host Nat Malkus talks to Jeff Hawkins of the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative and Campbell Scribner at the University of Maryland about the unique challenges and strengths of rural schools, the history of consolidation and local control, and why rural schools perform better than urban and town schools.
