San Jose is considered to be the launching pad of a dream that has come true for America. Research also showed that children who were born in the 80s from a low family income had some degree of success as compared to other countries. Today, the situation seems to have changed as these low-income families face tough situation year after year. In the recent years too, the housing prices have sprung up bringing a clear distinction between the rich and the poor in this region.
People have also disregarded the productivity of this area compared to how it was some decades ago. However, this situation can be changed by strengthening up the public education system in San Jose. This effort is meant to make a difference for the low-income families in this area. Although the pathways from poverty may seem narrow, education is the only thing that can change this situation. Some of the students who have excelled through Rocketship education have a different story to tell today.
Rocketship education is a nonprofit network that has been built by public charter schools. This form of education deals with directing combined effort from the parents, educators, and organizations to the life of a student to experience a significant change. The system has strengthened the ecosystem in public school that puts a student on the path of learning English. At least 25 charter schools have been established since 2007 improving the lives of many low-income families.
Research done by Center for Research on Education Outcomes reveals that for a student who is in the line of poverty who learns English, the outcome is more positive than for that student who learns math in a higher level charter school. Business leaders in the region are giving a boost of their resources to enhance the Rocketship education in the area. Many other townships have also started adopting this form of education since it is seen to bring a very positive income to the society. By working together and learning from each other, San Jose will soon be a large region full of opportunities for everyone.
