I am a fourth-grade teacher in the South Bronx. Our school is located in one of the ten poorest congressional districts in the United States. We serve three halfway houses for mothers recovering from drug use and several homeless shelters. We are, in short, a very needy school. I would love to take my students on trips related to the fourth-grade social studies curriculum. Social studies is an area that is often neglected, as we focus on a furious fight to get our children on equal footing with their peers in reading and math. My class would truly appreciate and learn from a tour of the United Nations. My problem is that our school policy does not allow me to ask already economically challenged parents to pay for class trips. I must rely on the generosity of outside donors like yourself. Students learn best when the activities we do are hands-on and engaging. Most of our students do not get opportunities to visit these sites with their families. And like all children, they love being outside of the classroom once in a while. I want them to be able to take advantage of all the amazing resources New York City has to offer. Please help make this possible for this class of inner-city kids.
