Of the 13 million children growing up in poverty in this country, about half won't graduate from high school. Those who do graduate will perform, on average, at an eighth-grade level (National Assessment of Educational Progress 2005].
You can help change this statistic. Learn what you can do from Coreil Ryder, former Teach for America corps member. Ryder will give a presentation at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5, in Room 152, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.
