THE CASE FOR
CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH LEARNING THATâ€™S FUN
PROBLEM industrialized nations
After World War II, the United States had the #1 high school graduation rate in the world. Today, we rank among 27 industrialized nations. Our students now rank 14th in reading & 25th in math.
SOLUTION The only way to stop Americaâ€™s education crisis is to start rethinking our education system. By bringing innovative technologies into the classroom and conducting cutting edge research on high achieving school systems across the globe, st KidsFirst is taking a century approach to improving student achievement.
OUR KidsFirst! takes a two-pronged approach to solving the education crisis, first researching the best technologies and teaching techniques and then putting them to the test at our pilot sites. We currently operate pilot sites in NYC and are looking to expand. KidsFirst! is careful to test only the strategies that are scalable and replicable, so that we can take the lessons we learn in NYC to classrooms around the country.
With your support, KidsFirst! will accerlate evaluation efforts and expand our impact to more students. We plan to launch 5 new pilot sites by 2015, where we will develop new strategies for improving student performance. The end of this country’s education crisis is in sight, but we need your help to get there.
