What does the health of a community depend on? A lot of things, obviously, but one thing in particular is how educated its kids are.
Kids dropping out of school and living without a high school diploma don’t create a healthy society. A group in Spokane is aiming to catch at-risk kids before they drop out.
We’ve written why we teach the teachers. We’ve written why we support public education (twice, actually). And we’ve written about STEM Education, FIRST Robotics and preparing our future workforce.
All are important pieces for today’s students so they’ll be prepared after graduating.
There are two other groups that share that goal, and we have partnerships with both.
