Education is a journey that is muchmore inclusive than what happens in the schoolhouse alone. Education is a lifelong experience that begins well before a child ever sets foot in the classroom and continues long past a cap-and-gown commencement.
You must learn to read before you can read to learn. Mastering basic math and science lays the groundwork for future problem solving in a 21-st century economy. And being prepared to take advantage of a quality education beyond high school is essential for obtaining a position in our increasingly skilled workforce. There needs to be a focus on education from craddle to career and beyond.
Not all students have access or the necessary skills for the next stage in their life. This affects their future and the future of our community.
Statistics show how important key indicators are.
There are as many reasons why children, students and adults are unable to meet indicators of success. Because of this, no single intervention will be able to significantly alleviate this problem. Instead, we need a community solution, with a wide variety of stakeholders offering a full menu of interventions, so that we can tailor our services to each individual's needs.
Achieve Quad Cities needs you to get involved and volunteer today to change the community's future.
