The Hechinger Report

Zaire Wallace, 17, a student at The Charter School of San Diego, answers questions about Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” while watching a YouTube video of someone narrating the poem. He likes the self-paced curriculum that allows students to complete a course in significantly less time than at a traditional school. After his second suspension, he enrolled at The Charter School of San Diego, an alternative school serving many students at risk of dropping out.

Digital Promise

The majority of K-12 students in the U.S. For these students, poverty brings a host of other disadvantages, most beyond the school district’s control: broken homes, transient living situations, and a lack of educational support at home. Between 30 and 40 percent of students enter kindergarten not ready for school. Once they start their education, those students have a wider variety of social and emotional needs and receive less educational enrichment outside of school.
