Abstract

This article presents the findings of a literature review of research in teacher preparation for rural settings. In the past there has been little or no preparation of teachers for rural teaching, with the emphasis placed on supporting beginning teachers adequately before their first teaching appointment. However, what has become clear is that the focus of research has been predominantly in primary and secondary education. In our search we have not been able to identify a substantial body of literature about the preparation of early childhood educators for rural practice.
