We are thrilled to announce a call for abstracts for a special issue collaboration between the Journal of American Indian Education and The Rural Educator. This special issue is an effort to build synergy between the fields of Indigenous education and rural education around the theme of (Re)Centering Intellectual, Cultural, and Political Sovereignties: Indigenous Education in Rural Spaces. 

We encourage a diverse variety of manuscripts from research manuscripts to practitioner focused contributions, as well as manuscripts which de-center the priorities of western academia and prioritize Indigenous ways of knowing. 

Please submit abstracts to  by December 15, 2022. Anticipated Publications in Fall 2023 and/or Spring 2024.

Please reach out to our Guest Editorial Team with any questions (to work in collaboration with both journals) and we look forward to seeing your abstracts.

The Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET) at Stanford University is pleased to offer a new online professional learning opportunity specifically for rural school teams. School teams (a combination of teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, district personnel, etc.) will be supported in analyzing their school/district data, designing interventions, implementing the intervention, and revising based on the data. At every step, school teams will receive personalized support from Stanford University researchers. The pilot cohort will begin in Winter 2023 and will be free (supported by grant funding) for participating school teams! The pilot cohort is limited in size to provide 1-on-1 support. School team participation is a 2-year commitment. Professional learning is module-based and will take an estimated 3-4 hrs. per month over the two years. Data on school teams’ participation in the course will also be collected. Participation in this research component is optional. Please contact  with any questions or interest!
