National Research Center on Rural Education Support
Home page: http://www.nrcres.org/
The National Research Center on Rural Education Support (NRCRES) was established by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Through this grant a team of 20 researchers will conduct research studies and implement training for teachers in participating rural schools. The purpose is to work toward improved teaching, learning and student achievement in rural schools nationwide.
Helping NRCRES to achieve their goals, LEARN NC provides a variety of online courses to students and teachers in rural areas. These offerings range from high school courses that may not otherwise be available to students in some school systems (such as Advanced Placement and Latin) as well as teacher professional development courses.
