The tiny town of Newcomb is recruiting foreign students to help keep its school doors open. Faced with a dwindling population and declining school revenues, the rural community began recruiting international students who pay to attend Newcomb's public schools.

Students from places as diverse as France, Russia and Vietnam pay $7,000 per year, including room and board, to attend the New York school. Recruiting foreign students has not only allowed the school district to survive, it has added a cultural diversity to the student body, and is a bargain for foreign students who want to attend school in the U.S. Stats for School District Survival Strategies Trending: Older & Chilly
