Weak Economy Threatens Rural Schools

Cash-strapped districts are considering closing small, far-flung outposts. But parents and other residents say that would hurt their children's education and their communities.

Mount Charleston, Nevada - Ron and Paula Marino decided to move from Las Vegas to this village of thick pines and ski-lodge-style homes so their two boys can attend Earl B. Lundy Elementary School.

With its one teacher for a total of nine students, the school seemed like Shangri-La within the underfunded and overcrowded Clark County School District, which encompasses Las Vegas and outlying rural areas.

But by the time the Marinos' 4- and 5-year-old boys are ready to start school, Lundy may be closed.
