Struggling to Survive in Era of Dwindling Resources - Rural Education Sharing administrative and instructional services across rural districts can be a good compromise between autonomy and consolidation, according to a new study published in the Journal of Research in Rural Education. That said, researchers found that some shared services worked better than others—distance education was a plus because it gave students more access without stressing teachers, but sharing teachers among schools seemed to do the opposite, straining morale and effectiveness. "Stretching to Survive: District Autonomy in an Age of Dwindling Resources" was a case study on a four-district collaboration that had been in existence for more than 15 years.
