Why Rural Schools Matter

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter concludes this book's research conducted in Delight and Earle, Arkansas. In 2010, the school in Delight was consolidated with Murfreesboro High, while only two of the schools in Earle remain open. Dunbar Middle School closed and its students split between the other schools. Looking at the future for schools in Delight and Earle, this chapter emphasizes the need for the development of a more distinct and connected approach to education policy. We need reforms that balance individual and collective needs, support for local and national goals, and foster racial and geographic justice.

Keywords:   Delight, Earle, Arkansas, Murfreesboro High, Dunbar Middle School, education policy, geographic justice
