The chance to achieve success in the 21st-century for low-income families are diminishing by the year according to a number of studies with the arrival of charter schools one of the major reasons why the U.S. is becoming one of the testing grounds for this form of educations. One of the leaders in this area is the San Jose-based Rocketship Education which has now grown to offer educational opportunities to students in California, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C.; the development of schools in these areas has brought with it unique challenges for the parents and educators who are battling to prove they are at the very least a popular choice for advancing educational opportunities across the planet.
Rocketship Education has proven itself to be a major source of educational success with a recent study from The Center for Research on Education Outcomes estimating those who attend the Rocketship Education Charters Schools system receive as much as a month of extra tuition in math and English for each year of attendance. These figures show why the charter school program has become such a hit for parents and educators who become involved and seek out the best possible chance of a better life for their students.
Parents at the Nashville, Tennessee campus have gone so far as to express in an open letter to lawmakers and the public the reasons why they believe the charter school system is the best option for members of their families. The fact the families of Tennessee were willing to explain the reasons behind the success of charter schools and fight for the rights of their children shows the work of the school is proving a success. One of the key factors in the development of Rocketship Education has been the creation of a school community where the parents of students become charter school advocates completely engaged in the education of students.
