Rural Education Challenges


The world has become a crowded place, but there are still vast areas where civilization has barely made a dent. People who live in the wilderness have children with educational needs, so they must formulate a way to school them. School systems in these areas have little or no hope of transporting students to schools, so they work with parents to provide compulsory education. They use a mixture of old-fashion methods and modern technology to meet educational goals.

While traveling to school is not possible, some students in extremely rural areas do have communications available to them. They can use technology to attend classes online, or they can study strictly by book and only do their testing with this method. School systems that do not have up-to-date hardware have a choice of sending teachers to the students for testing, or they can occasionally transport remote students into town for their testing requirements.
