Students in Rural Schools Have Limited Access to Advanced Mathematics Courses. Issue Brief No. 7
Graham, Suzanne E.
Carsey Institute
This Carsey brief reveals that students in rural areas and small towns have less access to higher-level mathematics courses than students in urban settings, which results in serious educational consequences, including lower scores on assessment tests and fewer qualified students entering science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) job pipelines. (Contains 3 figures and 3 endnotes.)
