Rural Community Alliance is pleased to release a new video promoting the benefits of small schools. https://www.youtube.com/TheNewRuralArkansas Arkansas is a rural state with small schools educating students in their own communities. This model provides better parent engagement and community involvement and higher graduation rates. Small schools are also found by researchers to be more effective in educating students in poverty.
