The gap in quality of education is striking even in advanced countries like the U. S. and while most establishments either keep quiet about it act like there is no way to narrow down that gap, some have been narrowing it down for years.
The Rocketship Schools is a not-for-profit establishment of several educational institutions for children. The students can enjoy high quality in education despite that their family has a low income. One of the objectives of the Rocketship Education charter schools is to prove that with the proper approach and care, children from low-income communities can achieve great things in and outside of the classroom.
Rocketship Schools spoke up on the gap in education and stated that there are many aspects to choose from if institutions want to start narrowing down the deficit. One of the is creating an emergency fund for the families that are forced to leave their homes because of any natural disaster. Another thing is to learn how to communicate with students who are falling behind and help them transition from remedial classes and summer school to a more stable way of education and higher accomplishments.
According to parents, Rocketship Schools have done it all. In fact, these charter schools have some of the higher performance rates in the country and often surpass premium academic institutions. Students of the Rocketship schools are usually ahead of schedule and study the material for the following year.
Many have questioned how Rocketship Schools manage to do that, and according to the parents and teachers, the answer lies in the approach to the students and education as a whole.
The schools refer o their approach as the Rocketship Approach. It consists of three pillars which teachers follow strictly in their work. The non-profit institutions believe that teaching should not be universal for every student as people are different in their capabilities and talents. Teachers pay attention to every individual and keep track of their progress and needs. The second pillar is to help them develop their abilities. Another aspect is the parents. They take an active part in setting up schedules and work with the teachers and children on projects.
