Some people say that the government really cares about the educational system of the country, but only by the skin of its teeth. This means that it is barely doing anything that can structurally address the problems of the deficiencies in the educational framework of the public education system.
This means that there has to be other alternatives today. One of the brilliant and most responsive alternatives discovered today by passionate educators is Rocketship Education, which is a charter school that right now is the pioneer of K-5 Personalized Learning. But what is it?
The K-5 Education System from Rocketship Education is essentially focused on elementary education and helping parents get the most quality public education for their children at the lowest cost. Co-founder and CEO of Rocketship Education, Preston Smith, publicly explained what Rocketship Education is about by highlighting in an article from The 74 Million the different lessons the school has learned in over the 10 years that it is helping communities address the issues of marginalized students.
Some of the lessons learned by Rocketship Education is the fact that personalized learning should always start at home. Sure, the charter school has made headlines in advocating for technology integration that helps bridge the gap between parents and schools, but Rocketship learned that it is their annual home visits that really have made an impact in their business model. It is the strong relationships that the teachers have built with parents that have really shaped the future and motivation of the teachers.
Another lesson that the Rocketship Education has learned is the fact that there has a lot to be said about the racial discrimination that the government seems to portray in terms of children and parents choosing schools.
