OCRE Federal Rural Education Summit

 
As part of our commitment to supporting rural education, Organizations Concerned About Rural Education is hosting its first virtual Federal Rural Education Policy Summit for Capitol Hill on Wednesday, February 24th. During this half-day virtual event, Hill Staffers and other attendees will get an overview of the most pressing issues facing rural K-12 schools, administrators, teachers, and students as our public school system continues to recover from the pandemic. 
 
The Summit will feature five separate 1-hour long policy sessions focused on the most pressing education-related issues facing our nation's rural communities and offer attendees resources and recommendations for how to solve these problems. If that wasn't enough to get your attention, then the Summit's line-up of high-profile speakers and experts from the Department of Census, Center on Budget Priorities, and Learning Policy Institute, are sure to convince you to join the conversation.
