Organizations Concerned about Rural Education is a coalition of two dozen education, farm, rural, technology and utility organizations that has been active since 1988. What brings us together is our common concern for the economic future of rural America, particularly, the education of rural children. Modern, effective schools are vitally important to that future.

From You
    We are a large and growing group of concerned citizens who want to give our rural school children and their communities the best possible chance for a solid education. This takes time, effort, and ideas from all of us who really care.

    OCRE members meet regularly to exchange information and hear about issues affecting rural schools and communities. For more information, click here.
