Twelve years after the Great Recession crippled our nation’s economy, many state policymakers were on the cusp of returning education funding to pre-2008 levels. Unfortunately, the economic hardship brought on by COVID-19 has forced states to make difficult fiscal decisions, including cutting education funding or pressing pause on education finance reform. Join us for the latest edition of our Governing Principals series to discuss how states are rethinking education finance and how the pandemic has created both challenges and opportunities in education finance reform.

Rural students and rural communities are not a monolith. Across the United States, each rural community is made up of different people with different backgrounds, values, and demographics.

In this webinar, we will hear from state leaders and advocates who are working diligently to support rural Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students to overcome the barriers that impact their educational experiences.
