Rural teachers’ greater esteem

Guidance on Leadership and Management as well as the Teacher Status Project have also been studied recently and reported in the Journal- not least research reviews on rural schools. NASS has been told:

"Thank you for your interesting and inspiring letter. I am attaching three papers: The finding that teachers in small rural schools perceive that they are held in greater esteem by their school communities and express a greater sense of responsibility to their pupils than teachers in larger urban schools might add a little grist to your mill. It might also add to pupil and teacher well-being in small rural schools.

The other two papers are the introductory and final chapters of the journal to give a wider perspective on rural schools in Northern Europe. In general the evidence is that small school attainment is as good as in large schools. Relevant websites give more details."
