Last month, from the White House East Room, President Obama announced the launch of My Brother’s Keeper, “a new initiative with leading foundations and businesses taking a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to building ladders of opportunity that will unlock the full potential of boys and young men of color in America.” With this announcement, the President is making a significant statement and giving us validation on our collective work to improve the life outcomes of black men and boys.
I and Calculus Roundtable are honored to be a part of the President's initiative through work with our flagship program, The Digital One Room Schoolhouse (DORS).
DORS will help retrofit America's most challenging schools with from more challenging curriculums, better progress reporting for parents, added content support for teachers and new ways to measure how well our kids think, not how well they can fill in a bubble on a test.
Thank you to all our supporters and partners for your tireless advocacy, teaching, research, and leadership has made it possible for us to make lives better for children and their families. Your support and interest has contributed to us being able to play a small part in the future of public education.
Thanks again for your support!
