Rocketship Discovery Prep is one of the solutions to the nation’s most difficult problems. John Danner, of the Silicon Valley, who once worked as a school teacher himself, started the program to help teach kids that are lost in the gap for equal achievement.
There are five charter elementary schools that were started by Danner have reached their goal to help the children reach their full potential like the other more privileged children in other schools. This is quite an achievement considering the fact that so much money was previously used to reach this goal. The Rocketship Charter School accomplished it without extra money. Instead, they use a system of education.
Stating that this is an epidemic which threatens the very fabric of our financial future, Danner states that this charter program must become the norm for all districts if they are going to be able to get ahead of the curve when it comes to academic success. Which is exactly what Danner proposes to do. His goal is to reach 50 cities by 2020.
Some cities, like New York City, have been asking for this program to come to them for some time now. Perhaps it will soon be a reality for them. Then the student work will be better and prepare them for a future where they are less likely to drop out. That is important for the future of the world’s economic stage. Without the success of those students, what would have become an asset can quickly become a financial burden to society.
It is a welcome addition to the school system for certain. The work that the children accomplish can help create future participants in the financial world, instead of burdens. When a comparison of the success rate of graduates from the charter school by Rocketship verses the people that end up incarcerated after dropping out of school from low grades, it becomes very obvious that this is an essential part of the success for the future. Nobody understands this better than Danner, who knew that his program would launch successful futures for disadvantaged kids. It’s a necessity in today’s economic stage.
