Abstract

Forty percent of U.S. school districts, serving nearly 10 million children, are located in rural settings (Johnson and Strange, 2007). Of the 250 poorest communities in the United States, 244 are rural (Malhoit, 2005). One-fifth of all rural children in the United States live in poverty, and minority children living in rural areas are even more likely to be poor, with 46 percent of rural African American children and 43 percent of rural Native American children falling into this category (USDA, 2004).
