Rural Education National Forum

On October 13–15, 2016, Battelle for Kids and the National Rural Education Association hosted more than 500 attendees from 39 states at the 2016 Rural Education National Forum and 108th NREA Convention and Research Symposium. Attendees got to hear from leading experts and practitioners around topics at the forefront of rural education, and were paid a visit from John B. King, Jr., the U.S. Secretary of Education, along with other dynamic keynote presenters.

The team is already planning for next year. Stay tuned for details on the 2017 event.

Excellent conference. This was the best one yet!!!
The event was well-planned. I attended quality sessions and I was afforded the opportunity to network with people from across the country.
An event as large as this does not happen without the work and effort of many people. You are all to be commended. The ability to recruit the highest level of keynote speakers and have a wide selection of breakouts is appreciated.
