Charter schools can provide an alternative form of education for students who need specialized educational services. Many students from low income communities typically need charter school services because they provide them with choice. Fact is that many low-income public communities do not have adequate public schools. Rocketship Education Public Schools is a charter school that gives low-income students a chance to receive a stable education.
One of the biggest problems with low-income public schools is that they usually do not have the resources needed to help children. Remember, tax money is the biggest contributor to schools. Schools that are located in low-income communities will receive less money because the residents typically lower taxes for their properties. Rocketship works hard to change this situation.
Once a low-income community finds out about Rocketship they can petition to have this charter school set up in their area. If there is enough support for the school to be placed into a low-income community; Rocketship will then erect a school to serve that neighborhood. Parents can sign up for the school while it is being erected.
Once parents enroll their children they can then view the building process of the school as it takes place. They can even be included in the hiring process of teachers by participating in the interviewing process. This is something that typically does not happen when a public school is constructed.
Rocketship charter schools are designed for students K – 5. They focus on the elementary level because it provides curriculum that is designed to create a strong foundation for children. Remember, a child’s ability to be an effective reader and student is formed during the early years of their education experience.
If they cannot adequately read by the 3rd grade, chances are they will have this handicap for the rest of their educational experience and quite possibly the rest of their lives. So, Rocketship’s curriculum ensures that a child will have a strong foundation that will last them for the rest of their school career. Rocketship Education Public Schools help low-income students and communities by providing them with a first class education that makes a difference.
