One Vote For Rural Schools: Data collected in Iowa by Kimberly Schonert, Judi Elliott, and David Bills of the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory show that rural high schools in the state do a good job of getting their students ready for the demands of college life. The NCREL study found that 75 percent of the rural students who entered two- or four-year colleges earned their degrees within five years of their high school graduation. This is significantly better than the national average, which is 50 percent.
