Every single person deserves the opportunity to get a good education. Education is the avenue to so many different things and without it, a bad spiral can be caused ultimately resulting in poverty.
In the US especially, legal provisions are put in place for this. Two examples of these include:
- The Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA) of 1974 – a federal law prohibiting discrimination against faculty, staff and students.
- The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 – a way of distributing funds to educational institutes with a large amount of low-income families.
The development of Charter Schools was a huge leap in this goal as well, and organizations such as: Child Fund International, Save the Children and others are also doing a lot. But still more needs to be done. And that is how we try to contribute.
