THE PERKS OF ROCKETSHIP EDUCATION

The realization that a student’s family is possibly their greatest possession is an upcoming trend in the US education. In preparing the students for the world, most schools are increasing their investments in families so as to create a “partners in education” community. Notably, charter schools are showing impressive results after the introduction of this program by organizations like Rocketship Education. This is working at negating the big outcome difference between wealthy schools and those in low-income communities. Charter schools like this provide quality and amenable education with subsidy.

“I am a Rocketship Rocketeer at home, at school, and in my community.” These are the words of the ‘Rocketship Creed.’ The Rocketship Schools, founded in 2007, is a non-profit that builds schools in economically disadvantaged areas aiming at getting rid of the achievement gap between education and stability. Their mission is to work as a stimulus for change. Rocketship and Rocketeer are names chosen as a reminder that it is possible for anyone to rise to academic levels or even further than those that others in better living conditions reach.

The Rocketship Education staff’s partnership with parents aids them to come up with the local school’s enlightenment program and also the main value that will be characteristic of the school.

As a testament from a parent, Rocketship is said to come through for its students, their parents and the community at large. A great example is when they set up an emergency fund for parents and their children who had been driven out of their abodes by floods when the Coyote Creek ran over, and water splurged into their homes. With this help, the children continued their education in good health as they were fed and clothed and the breadwinners in families were able to keep working because they were not left homeless and had essentials. Their investment in their students’ lives and families has no boundaries.

Also, Rocketship schools emphasize on teachers identifying themselves with their students’ families and giving personal guidance that they may require to succeed. With this knowledge, they are capable of relating the child’s education and their experiences. Parents find this inclusion in their children’s learning ideal, and they support this unique charter system because it works.
