3-Day Education Meeting

July 7, 2003 - Posted at 9:31 a.m. CDT

Eureka Springs, Ark. -- Rural superintendents and some legislators are meeting in Eureka Springs today through Wednesday at the Arkansas Rural Education Association's summer meeting.

 They hope to agree on a framework for an alternative to Governor Mike Huckabee's school district restructuring plan.

Many small school districts are fighting to avoid consolidation as court-ordered education improvements sweep the state.

Huckabee is expected to call a special legislative session to focus on education issues in September.
