How can I support?
It's estimated that nearly 160,000 students miss school every day
1 in 7 students in kindergarten to 12th grade are either a bully or a victim of bullying
71% of students have reported bullying a problem at their school
90% of 4th through 8th graders report being a victim of bullying
Suicide rates among 10 to 14-year-olds have grown over 50% in the last three decades.
I can support my group by
offering advice in which they can take in order to make change happen at their school and environment.
offering to help whenever I am available
asking them how I can help them
Changes I hope to see?
I hope to see
students participate in one on one tutoring sessions
a safer environment at school and an increase in student academics.
the amount of students in each class reduced in order for students to have more one on one teacher and student interaction.

Academic Achievement Gap
In order to decrease the achievement gap, S.E.R.A would like implement student to student tutoring sessions. Therefore, it will also benefit students and keep them out of harms way like drugs, violence and bullying.
One in 50 Hispanics and African A. can understand specialized text compared to one in 12 whites.
The very beginning..
Statistics based on schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota

In 2005, the high school dropout rate of Hispanics was the highest, followed by A.A.
