Abstract

Access to fair and equal education is one of the most pressing issues of our time. The U.S. educational system is one of the most unequal systems in the developed world. Students routinely receive dramatically different learning opportunities based on their race, resources available to them, and their achievement. This major social problem has prompted the creation of organizations dedicated to addressing the needs of and improving educational outcomes for students from under-resourced districts. I will examine the efforts of one such organization, specifically looking at how issues of racial inequality, resource scarcity, and student achievement are addressed by the organization and its model.
