Our school is part of District Reference Group “H”, which is the second lowest socioeconomic level a school can be placed in. As a first year 8th Grade Science teacher, I have already experienced the lack of funding our science program receives. The activities that we complete, both in and out of the classroom, are greatly restricted by the socioeconomic makeup of our student body, as well as the absence of a budget for laboratory supplies. The students in our school come from very diverse backgrounds and cultures, and often do not have technology available at home that allows them to succeed at higher levels. The students themselves are very willing to work in school and take the opportunity to utilize the limited resources that are available.
