The Top 3 Reasons Educational Doors Are Staying Closed

1. Forced to rely upon IEPs + resource classes.

When parents look for education that is a better match for their child's needs or potential, the limited available resources don't bridge the gap.

2. Leaning into talent-based scholarships.

When the options are only open to those with unique skills, just a few find success. They can only get access based on exceptional talent or a large investment of time and money that most Memphis parents cannot afford.

3. Focusing on social charities alone.

Meeting social needs can address critical current needs, but only provides a temporary lift that leaves children and families in the exact same situation and doesn't change their educational outcomes.

A one-size-fits-all approach to education cannot unlock the future for underserved kids.

What if you could invest in a child’s potential?
