The Urban and Rural Educational Institute, LLC (UREI) was started in 2010 by Dr. Montrio Belton.  After serving as a principal in a high poverty middle school, taking several courses in Urban Education while studying for his doctorate, and serving as Director of School Transformation for the South Carolina Department of Education, Montrio discovered most educators and community leaders are ill-equipped to effectively educate children of poverty.  Consequently, poor students, especially those in rural and urban communities, lag their affluent counterparts in most quantitative data.
