Recently, I was asked by a lovely group of emerging scholars to contribute a reflective piece for a blog they were creating on the educational experiences of those from rural backgrounds. I was pleased to be asked, and since my experience of growing up in a rural area has certainly shaped my worldview, particularly my views of education, I was excited to do some thinking and writing on the topic. Thank you to Kathleen, Moira, and Erin for including me in this project. These fine scholars are continuing their work in this area through both their blog, but also presenting this topic at this year's AERA conference in Philadelphia.
