National Rural Education Association

Welcome to NREA

The voice of all rural schools and communities

The National Rural Education Association (NREA) is the voice of all rural schools and rural communities across the United States. In an increasingly confusing system, we help rural educators navigate through the noise by finding and helping you use the resources needed to educate today’s students. Whether that’s a rundown on current legislation and how it affects rural communities or guidance on how to meet specific educational needs within your community, our national organization can help. We also help in the publication of your research because we believe in the value of shared knowledge. We are your advocates—your voice—in education.
