The Rural Systemic Initiative of the National Science Foundation: An Evaluation Perspective at the Local School and Community Level
Horn, Jerry G.
This report is based on an almost 5-year continual study of selected collaboratives engaged in education reform and improvement with a focus on science, math, and technology in schools serving K-12 students in rural America. This version of the final report of the study is primarily intended for use by educators, decision makers, and others who are interested in education program improvement from the perspective of the local school and community. This report does not reflect all elements of this study, nor does it attempt to evaluate the NSF or the Rural Systemic Initiative (RSI) of this government organization. It is an attempt to describe some of the critical components of the effort, the perceptions of these at the local level, and an objective view of the impact and change that occurred.
