THE STORY:

BLUE ENGINE INC wrote -

Blue Engine is a new service model that combats college under-preparedness by recruiting and supporting teams of Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs), college graduates who partner with classroom teachers to increase academic rigor in low income community high schools in New York City

Success in college is shaped by many factors, but research has consistently shown that academic rigor during high school is the single strongest predictor of whether students sink or swim once they enter college. The Blue Engine model was designed to help students master the advanced academic skills required for high school and college success. BETAs dramatically reduce instructor-to-student ratios (1:6) by collaborating with teachers to customize instruction, increase academic rigor and build empowering relationships with students at every academic level—not just high achieving students, struggling students, or students who opt into the program—starting day one of freshman year. Over time, Blue Engine aims to increase college completion among students from low-income communities by helping our partner schools become beacons of educational excellence—places where college attendance is the norm and degree completion the expectation.
