It’s no secret that kids in poor, rural communities are getting less attention from teachers.
According to a report from the U.S. Department of Education, about one-third of students in America’s lowest-income districts had no classroom teachers in 2014.
And while this is certainly not the worst thing happening to students, it’s still a lot of kids, and the problems are especially severe in rural areas.
In the United States, one in five kids is living in rural communities, and about a quarter of them live in families with no parent or caretaker.
So what’s to blame?
There are some really big reasons why rural communities have been hit particularly hard.
“The education gap is one of the biggest issues facing rural communities,” said David J. Karp, a professor at George Mason University and author of the book The Education Gap: The Rise and Fall of a Global Problem.
“The vast majority of kids in these communities do not have access to a teacher who can help them.”
Karp and his colleagues analyzed the academic and health outcomes of students from rural and urban communities and compared them to children in similar communities in the U-S.
The authors found that kids who did not have an elementary or secondary school teacher in their neighborhood were twice as likely to have poor academic outcomes than kids who had one.
And in a state that relies on public funding to fund school systems, rural kids face a greater financial burden.
And it wasn’t just a local problem.
A recent study by the Brookings Institution found that when kids are not in schools, they are less likely to participate in sports, socialize, and engage in extracurricular activities, which can help to reduce school-based suspensions.
In rural communities with few schools, kids also have a greater risk of getting injured or going missing.
According to a 2015 report from McKinsey & Co., rural states are also experiencing a huge drop in child obesity rates.
That’s especially true for kids of color, who are more likely to get the disease than white kids.
That means more rural kids are at risk for obesity.
The authors also found that low-income kids in rural and high-income communities are less apt to have a college degree.
But it doesn’t stop there.
In 2014, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) found that while nearly 60 percent of rural students in the United Sates had some college, only about a third of students did in rural-heavy states.
These numbers aren’t the only reason that rural communities suffer from an education crisis.
There are other factors that also affect kids, including the high cost of a high school diploma.
For example, the average price of a college education in the rural U.T. in 2016 was $28,800, according to data from the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
The cost of the diploma also has a direct impact on kids’ academic outcomes, as more students drop out of high school due to a lack of financial aid, according the McKinsey report.
Finally, there are all the costs of living in a rural community.
Rural areas can have high property taxes and are more expensive than many metropolitan areas, according to a 2016 report from The Economic Policy Institute.
As a result, some states are trying to address the problem by cutting back on local government spending, and some are also offering incentives to lure more business to rural areas, Karp said.
Still, many people continue to believe that getting a good education is something that only the poor can afford.
There are some things that rural kids can do to make sure they have access.
One of them is enroll in a preschool program.
According the National Partnership for Elementary and Secondary Education, preschool programs can help lower the cost of child care and education by helping kids learn and prepare for school.
However, the preschool program that I enrolled in had a $5,000 annual cap on the amount of money that kids could contribute.
So even if I made $5 a day, I would only be able to pay $20.
That was a big barrier for me to make it work.
Another option is to attend a community college.
In 2015, the UAB Foundation reported that almost 50 percent of all college-educated students in rural states chose to attend community college, while only 19 percent of students who didn’t go to college chose to do so.
Some of the community colleges that offer degrees in agriculture and natural resources have been getting a lot more attention from states.
In some states, they’re also getting more attention in other areas.
On top of the money, many rural communities also rely on a lot on food aid.
Food stamps, which were originally created to help those struggling to make ends meet, are used by many people who live in rural parts of the country.
For example, in California, food stamps are
