Every Child Reading by two

TeamChildren Volunteers
TeamChildren Volunteers

In Philadelphia alone, over 60% of first graders are not able to read proficiently in the 4th grade.

Throughout our state and across the country half of our kids in elementary school can not read proficiently. I heard recently a politician talking about how great Colorado was then we looked on www.greatschools.org and found that 75% of elementary kids in Dever alone are not proficiently in Math or reading.

This problem begins at home and can end there.

www.handsonparenting.org 

 

These four web sites are a way for parents to go online and find invaluable early learning programs for their kids. 

The challenge is then the digital divide. how many of these parents do not have computers at home. Why is this not a national crisis? 

Your contribution will help us deepen and expand our impact. 

We have now distributed over 18,000 low cost - high quality refurbished computers to families, schools and organizations. We are impacting the academic, economic, social and physical future of over 80,000 kids.  

Here are some statistics 

Elementary and Secondary Education

Enrollment

In fall 2018, about 56.6 million students will attend elementary and secondary schools, including 50.7 million students in public schools and 5.9 million in private schools. Of the public school students, 35.6 million will be in prekindergarten through grade 8 and 15.1 million will be in grades 9 through 12. The fall 2018 public school enrollment is expected to be slightly higher than the 50.6 million enrolled in fall 2017 and is higher than the 49.5 million students enrolled in fall 2010 (source). Total public elementary and secondary enrollment is projected to increase between fall 2018 and fall 2027 to 52.1 million.

 

Of the projected 50.7 million public school students entering prekindergarten through grade 12 in fall 2018, White students will account for 24.1 million. The remaining 26.6 million will be composed of 7.8 million Black students, 14.0 million Hispanic students, 2.6 million Asian students, 0.2 million Pacific Islander students, 0.5 million American Indian/Alaska Native students, and 1.6 million students of Two or more races. The percentage of students enrolled in public schools who are White is projected to continue to decline through at least fall 2027 along with the percentage of students who are Black, while the percentage of students who are Hispanic Asian, and of Two or more races are projected to increase (source).

In fall 2018, about 1.4 million children are expected to attend public prekindergarten and 3.6 million are expected to attend public kindergarten (source).
