Gagnon, Douglas J.; Mattingly, Marybeth J. – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
Research is just beginning to describe with precision determinants of racial and ethnic achievement gaps. Work by Reardon, Kalogrides, and Shores found that factors such as parental income, parental education, and segregation are the strongest predictors of achievement gaps. In this study we expand this line of inquiry to examine the role of…

McHenry-Sorber, Erin; Budge, Kathleen – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
This conceptual article challenges researchers and practitioners to reconsider the utility of current constructs used to understand the rural school superintendency. We evaluate the rural leadership literature through two waves of scholarship: insider/outsider conceptions and place-conscious/critical place-conscious constructs. We assert critical…

We report on a phenomenological study of the leadership experiences of six novice, rural public school principals in a midwestern U.S. state.

Zuckerman, Sarah J.; Wicox, Kristen Campbell; Schiller, Kathryn S.; Durand, Francesca T. – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
Rural schools have repeatedly been subjected to standardizing state and federal education policies that seek to minimize variance in instructional systems and increase the number of college- and career-ready graduates. The Race to the Top policy agenda combined standards-based and accountability-based reforms to meet these objectives and once…

Fuller, Edward J.; Pendola, Andrew; LeMay, Marie – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
Since the 1970s, there has been keen interest in examining gender representation in leadership positions across various areas of employment, including K-12 education. Indeed, there have been long-standing concerns about the percentage of women principals. Few studies, however, have examined the percentages of women principals at different…

Howley, Craig B.; Howley, Aimee – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
Did rural America bring Donald Trump to the presidency? As a phenomenon related to the rise of Trump, the authors try, in this paper, to explain the conservatism that surrounds them personally, as rural residents and rural education scholars. Their neighbors are (mostly) conservative; in part it defines them; it is part of their culture. They have…

Howley, Craig B.; Clifton, James; Howley, Aimee – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2018
Research in education, but notably also in history (as James suggests here), is much better conceived and practiced as a kind of conversation than as a scheme for "outing the facts". Of course, some colleagues (particularly in education) think otherwise! But when it comes to something that "means" something--a connective…

To understand the social experiences of rural teachers recruited by cohort-based alternative pathway programs in the United States, I interviewed 17 rural teachers recruited by Teach For America (TFA). While many new rural teachers experience social isolation early in their careers when teaching in communities in which they did not grow up, these…

School farms were established in Tasmania in the 1930s following a visit of an Australian eduation official to the United States and the United Kingdom. There are still more than 30 school farm operations functioning in some capacity throughout the state, unlike in the rest of Australia where similar small school farms are not common. In this…

Corbett, Michael; Donehower, Kim – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2017
In this article we analyze the emergence of the field of rural literacies. We attempt to map this field in a way that illustrates the foundational ideas of literacy and rurality as relational concepts, which are devoid of meaning as what we call "singularities." Our insistence on the importance of context and place reveals multiple rural…
