A quiet Common Purpose renaissance in rural USA

A quiet Common Purpose renaissance has been going on in rural communities across America. Read the real language: collaborative, creative, cooperative, synthesis, philosophy, demonstrable outcomes. "The PACERS (Program for Academic and Cultural Enhancement of Rural Schools) Cooperative of Small Schools, sponsored by the Program for Rural Services and Research (PRSR) at the University of Alabama, is the culmination of years of partnerships between the PRSR and rural communities across the state." This is social engineering at its best. Is this Common Purpose USA style?
