League of Women Voters forum; Can Every Child Learn?

May 17, 2017 from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

CAN EVERY CHILD LEARN?

Special Programs that meet the Challenge

With Public Education under attack, it is important to learn about and support programs that make a difference.  

Against a nationwide background of growing socio-economic and racial disparity, it is the grim fact that the current academic achievement gap among California’s students keeps widening. 

The good news is that for the first time we have data indicating the scope of the problem for these vulnerable students and have begun to address it through special Jr. and Sr. High School programs that recognize the historic achievement gap and help provide equal opportunity for all students to succeed.
