Community as an Anchor, Compass and Map for Thriving Rural Education
The papers presented in this issue gravitate around notions of community within rural, regional and remote education. These concepts of community are not new to us in education, particularly those of us with an interest in the teaching and learning that happens beyond the city limits. This concept is not new to our readership either, having already devoted attention to community in an earlier issue in 2020 and across the journal’s significant history. What these papers offer here is new perspectives on the priorities being pursued, the programs being developed and the opportunities arising from engaging community in all aspects of rural teaching and learning.
