Connecting Rural and Urban Education Research
In this special issue of the Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, a collection of international authors considers how their work and experiences in rural education research can inform, and sometimes even improve, urban-based education research. The issue responds to the provocation to shift such perceptions and locate the rural as a key and constituent part of the wider field of education. The articles set out to show connections between the rural and the urban. In doing this, the authors challenge existing notions of a rural-urban divide. They present examples of ruraling, a term coined by Roberts and Fuqua (2021) to explain the move to a rural perspective across the broader field of education. The collective aim of the articles is to demonstrate and speculate how rural education research might rural (using the word as a verb) urban education research.
