Neka, I taught in Upward Bound for years at my university. I swear, you had to pull the kids arms to come. It confused me, because they were literally paying the kids to learn and even that wasn't motivation enough for some. I help in a program now called the PLUS Program. It gives minority undergrads exposure to the "law school experience." They pay those kids too, and you still have to twist most of their arms to work.
bless you lima!! it was, with out a doubt, one of my favorite experiences in my life. you could tell how much devotion the teachers had being there every saturday and m-f during the summer.
 

really!? kids don't wanna be there? i loved the experience!! besides the stipend (ppbbtt big whoop), we went on educational field trips (galleries, museums, concerts, operas), it kept our minds fresh during what could be a summer lag and provided us with 2 college courses (government and sociology) our senior year in hs. it fostered our natural desire to learn and encouraged many of us to go to college.

 

smh-- it's a wonderful program that does a LOT of good. people need to wake up.


It is a great program. We did SAT/ACT prep programs too. It does warm my heart to know it helped people. I think most kids got more focused in college. Something about high school makes kids want to act like they don't care about anything.

I'd start my own school and give back to my alma mater (an HBCU).

forgot ALLLL about that. they also did fafsa assistance and going over the differences between grants, loans, teaching us about grace periods and the like.
 
yeah not caring is all a part of the (cliche) adolescent culture. you're just so focused on finding what you're about; there's not much left for anything/one else.

That is so true. Overall, I had great kids. I taught higher level mathematics ( Pre-Calculator/Calc) and Science, so I had bright kids. All of my kids went to college, and most on scholarship. I have to agree with you that Upward Bound would be a great program to endow.

I'm proud to see you doing well. I know your family must be really proud of your Neka.

I would donate to K-12 science departments.
I'd also like to fund experiential education and build "outdoor classrooms" for schools.
Lastly, I'd like to give scholarships to teachers of math and science who want to pursue masters or doctorates

ETA: The vast majority of problems within schools though are disorganization and the general pedagogy of teachers, administrators, unions, superintendents and the politics involved. Many people who are employed to make decisions about our childrens futures are not genuinely invested in bettering our community.
