DataEthics4All NEEDS YOUR HELP to provide FREE STEM Tutoring to FIVE Million students across the nation in the next FIVE years.
Studies demonstrate that students in low-performing school districts – which tend to have large populations of minorities and students with low-income backgrounds – show significant academic achievement gaps.
These students include the 13 million children in the United States living in households with incomes below the federal poverty line. They also include a large population of Black students, whose graduation rate is below that of white students in all 50 states.
The worldwide picture is similarly concerning. According to recent research by the United Nations, progress towards inclusive and equitable quality education was too slow even before COVID-19 – over 200 million children will still be out of school in 2030.
This inequality has compounded due to COVID-19 where 90% of all students across the globe are out of school due to school closures. Remote learning remains out of reach for at least 500 million students.
As part of a response to this crisis, DataEthics4All pledges to provide FREE STEM Tutoring to five million students in the next five years.
This pledge is also the first step in bringing racial equity and cognitive diversity to growing fields in STEM, tech, and AI.
