I teach 6th and 7th grade mathematics at MS 223, The Laboratory School of Finance and Technology. We are a new middle school that has opened in what was the worst school in NYC. A telling sign of the poverty and neglect that our students face is that 95% of them receive free lunches from the federal government. Our school building is over-crowded and there are not enough rooms for classrooms let alone a library. While our teachers are very committed and work together as a team we are still lacking the kind of books that our students deserve. Many of our students love to read but have limited access to interesting literature. The few books they have access to are often outdated, uninteresting, or contextually not relevant. Reading is fundamental to economic success in our society and many of our poorest students are being excluded from opportunity because they lack access to good books. Please help fund this grant and give our students the chance to become the avid readers they deserve a chance to be. Thanks for your support and kind heart.
