THE STORY:

 

I'm on the Board of Engineers for Blue Engine - a new non-profit  that combats college under-preparedness by recruiting and supporting teams of Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs), recent college graduates who partner with classroom teachers to increase academic rigor in public high schools.

Did you know that only 15% of students from low income communities who enter college graduate?

That needs to change. And we can help.

In its first school year (20010-11), Blue Engine tripled the college ready rate in Algebra for its first partner school. 

Now, Blue Engine wants to do more. That's why they launched The December Campaign.

Year 1:  1 school, 1 subject, 12 BETAs, 180 students

Year 2:  3 schools, 3 subjects, 26 BETAs, 540 students

IT'S TIME FOR

Year 3:  Help us Expand our Reach.

Your donations will help Blue Engine expand in Year 3. Any bit of donations really help! 

 

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.
