We are an urban college prep school with a high college acceptance rate. Several of our students have gone on to Ivy League universities and we are gaining momentum every year. The main obstacle for our students is not their desire to learn, but rather their financial ability to provide material for themselves.
My students are dedicated students with low incomes and high expectations.
They want to succeed and are finding it harder to compete with suburban school that have lots of funding.
My school is an urban school and we have decided to take on a major project to help our students compete with students from wealthier areas. Suburban schools in our area already give their students computers or tablets to use at home as well as in the classroom. We are falling behind every year and it is time to close that gap.
Our initiative is to give every student a Chromebook to use in the classroom, and to take home every night.
Please help, there are so many amazing resources that our students can't access outside of school. The access to online resources shouldn't be limited by a family's ability to purchase a computer.
