Rural School Reform: Creating a Community of Learners

This paper examines an effort to support "bottom-up" change that responds to larger school reform initiatives. The intervention strategy involved a collaboration in which a cluster of rural schools designed and implemented site-based projects related to multicultural reform, and a regional college and the state department of education provided professional development and technical assistance tailored to specific projects. Named EMPIRE (Exemplary Multicultural Practices in Rural Education), the strategy was implemented in pilot projects in two states.
