Research suggests that a majority of youth in rural areas want to continue their education beyond high school. Yet rural students often have limited access to the advanced coursework, college and career counseling, and other programs that can help them transition into postsecondary education or the workforce. The Aspirations of Rural Youth Bridge Event Webinar, hosted by the Regional Educational Laboratory Southwest at SEDL, examines research and initiatives related to the challenges and successes that rural schools and communities experience in supporting students in the transition to college and careers. The webinar took place Thursday, October 3, 2013.
