Most of my students are from an urban area. They have chosen to attend a public charter school, to be part of a school whose mission surrounds leadership, rhetoric, entrepreneurship, and debate, in a classical model, with twenty-first century skills. Our school receives one-third of the funding of traditional public schools in our area of the state as a public charter school. As a small startup in only its 5th year, we often do not have the budget to be able to get materials for our student's interests as we try to cater to their interests and diverse learning needs.
We are a public charter school that receives a third of the funding that a typical public school does so we try to assign all work digitally to cut down on paper costs. If a student does not have a device or forgets their device it can be very difficult them. This Chromebook would be used for these situations which means it could help many different students on a daily basis. Not only would this help students in my class but it would also help the school as a whole because it would cut down on paper costs and even save some trees.
