The I Am a Rural Teacher campaign is committed to sharing voices and perspectives of rural teachers throughout the country. Elevating teacher advocacy is a primary objective of this national initiative, and the Rural Schools Collaborative will be working with the National Rural Education Association to share rural teachers' viewpoints with policymakers at the regional, state, and national levels.
Thank you to The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for supporting this effort.
