Regional Education News

Here are some helpful links to education news specific to your region:


EdWeek: States News – a clickable map for state-by-state education news

Southern Education Desk – education news from the Deep South (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Louisiana)

Education Northwest – education news for Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska

U.S. Department of Education: Rural Education Resource Center – horse’s mouth rural-ed updates

National Rural Education Association – originally founded as the Department of Rural Education in 1907


Note: Most major urban newspapers cover their respective metro area and their state overall (e.g. Washington Post: Education and Los Angeles Times: Education), and you probably already visit those outlets frequently. There are also many regional educational organizations charged with connecting rural communities. Just do an internet search for “regional education news” and add your region/state/locality.
