The Devil is in the Details:Rural-Sensitive Best Practices for Accountability Under No Child Left Behind
Rural School and Community Trust
The report has three sections. The first section is a chart that examines each of the 12 policy areas and describes its significance for rural schools. For each area, the most "rural-sensitive" position has been identified. The second section examines how each of these 12 policy areas is treated in the NCLB plan for 15 of the most "rural" states. The last section summarizes the findings of our investigation, discusses other areas of importance, and offers reflections about NCLB accountability in rural places.
