NREA Rural Research Calls

Fellow Rural Researchers:

Attached are the calls for papers and presentations for the 2007 Convention and Research Symposium for the National Rural Education Association!

The Symposium tends to feature scholarly research projects, and draws researchers from the US and abroad to exchange ideas and findings in rural education, and link them to the needs of rural teachers and administrators. Projects at past Symposia have been from university and college faculty, teachers, administrators, researchers at educational labs and centers, and others. Conference presentations tend to focus on strategies and practice directly.

Consider how your work, or the work of others you know, could enrich all of us at the Symposium or Conference. The NREA National Research Committee looks forward to seeing your work!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Best,

Pat Hardre, Ph.D.
Chair, NREA National Research Committee
