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.

Equal Voice America’s Family Story journalist Kathy Mulady of Seattle visited Arkansas recently along with independent photographer Jared Soares of Virginia.  The two documented the struggle rural community members are facing with the U.S. Post Office’s proposal to close 179 post offices in Arkansas.  See the photos and read the story here http://www.equalvoiceforfamilies.org/?p=2110.  Thanks to the Marguerite Casey Foundation and Equal Voice for America’s Families for giving Arkansans a “voice” about this important issue.  And thank you to RCA community members who graciously shared their stories.
