Currently, 49 percent of school districts in Tennessee are located in rural communities. From agriculture to energy to manufacturing, the success of rural communities impacts the success of our state as a whole. That’s why it is important to strengthen and transform rural education in Tennessee. The courses and resources available through the Tennessee Portal are designed to help rural educators improve classroom practices and help students prepare for college and career, and attract jobs to rural communities.
