It is highly unlikely that many of my students have ever been outside of Baltimore, let alone experienced the great natural diversity found in our world. I will be teaching in Baltimore City Public Schools, in which over 80% of students come from low-income families. Data shows that nine year old students in low-income communities are three grade levels behind their high-income peers. In Baltimore City, 62% of high school students graduated in 2009, and those who did performed on average at an eighth-grade level. A recent study reported that only two out of 30 students in Baltimore City will graduate from a four year college. One root cause of this 'achievement gap' between low-income students and their high-income peers is that schools in low-income communities lack sufficient capacity to meet students' needs. One way in which this need manifests is in the so-called 'digital divide.' Students in low-income communities often have limited access to technology in their classrooms.
