college
high school
4th grade
children living in low-income communities are already 2 to 3 grade levels behind their higher-income peers
every 26 seconds a student in America drops out of high school
Some go on to college
only 1/2 of students in low-income communities graduate from high school
those who do graduate, on average, perform at an 8th grade level
9th grade
overall, only 1 in 10 students growing up in poverty will graduate from college
but, will they be ready?
OUR GOAL
100%
80%
mastery of all objectives
will pass the EOC
Why does this cycle exit?
- schools are underfunded and lack resources
- children growing up in lower-income communities face extra challenges
- schools are not able to meet extra needs
- lack of belief
