In this chapter, the editors of this volume establish the grounding of, and need for, a repositioning and reconsideration of rural education research. With the term ‘ruraling’ created as a means to push back against the metrocentricity embedded in much educa-tion research, we pose an argument that rural education research is an established field of study. Finally, we introduce the chapters that follow, with their focus on re-search that champions rural places, spaces, and people. The contributing authors speak from their rural education research experiences at once to other rural education peers, but also to peers in the broader discipline of education research.
