Project REAL Gives Hope to Appalachian Teachers and Students

November 27, 2000

Oak Brook, IL—How did six Appalachian school districts go from academic emergency to academic success? With the help of Project REAL, that's how! Project REAL (Rural Education Aligned for Learning) is a combined effort of the Ohio University Southern Campus, the Ohio Department of Education, the South Regional Professional Development Center, Appalachia Educational Laboratory, and the North Central Mathematics and Science Consortium at NCREL.

Learn more about Project REAL in the Fall 2000 issue of NCREL's Learning Point. The latest issue also delves into the topics of standards, math wars, teacher shortages and more. In addition, check out the News & Notes pages and the product page for NCREL's newest educational resources.

NCREL's Learning Point magazine is distributed to every principal, school librarian, district superintendent, and educational service agency in its seven-state region of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. NCREL is one of 10 research and development laboratories supported in part by the U.S. Department of Education. With nearly 25,000 public and private schools in its region, NCREL serves close to one-fifth of the nation's teachers and students. This not-for-profit organization offers a variety of educational resources based on current research and best practices.
