Telecommunications holds much promise for rural schools. How schools in rural areas use electronic networks, specifically the TERC LabNetwork, is the theme of the current issue of the Journal of Research in Rural Education. The LabNetwork is the first national telecommunications network designed for secondary science teachers. Its intent is to build a community of practice among isolated teachers who want to improve science learning and teaching. In a series of journal articles, LabNet staff and veteran LabNet teachers describe their experiences, successes, and obstacles in introducing telecommunications and project-enhanced science in rural schools across the country.

The Journal of Research in Rural Education is published by the University of Maine, College of Education. Single copies of this special issue are available free while the supply lasts.
