My students attend a public Title I elementary school in a small town in the heart of rural California. Title I means that 70% of them receive free or reduced price lunches which is a standard measure of poverty in schools. In my class of 27 kids, 20 of them receive free/reduced lunch (74%). In addition, 22 are members of minority groups (82%), 5 are English Language Learners (20%), and 2 are students with disabilities (7%). The combination of poverty, disability, and a language barrier has presented my students with significant academic challenges. Last year on the state test, 15 of them, or 56%, scored Not Proficient in English/Language Arts. This is because most of them read below grade level.
