This storyboard does not have a description.
Did you know that our students in high Schools all around NYC are being affected by low resources on higher education? Did you also know that these schools are mainly located in urban minority communities?
Students are not recieving the proper knowledge and resources on higher education because of the environment their in, their racial ethnicity, and because of several policies put into place, such as NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and THE GRADING REPORT CARDS!!
“Why should we even care about this class. When you’re repeatedly told that you’ll never make it to college because you live in the ghetto, El Barrio, discourages you, and really makes you question if it’s even worth it. I went to schools that were filled with kids like me, Latino and African American students, do you think they talked about college with us? There was no one, no posters, and no career days to get us into starting to even think about college!”
Because of the report card grading system policy, several schools in these communities do receive low grades, mainly because they are not receiving the proper support from its teachers, teachers seeing them as a problem due to their ethnicity and the "ghetto" they live in.With low grades = low federal funding= less resources
But Schools, like CPEHS, are not letting the low funding and low resources affect the knowledge their students are receiving. But by training a small amount to students and teachers on everything on college, with help from non profit organizations, their students are being provided full education and dull resources on higher education.
We need change and we don't have to depend on the federal funding to help support that change! Each one of us in our own community can help to break down the social reproduction system in our school systems.
