WHY LEGENDS CHARTER SCHOOL
Equity Now's efforts are focused on discovering, planning and implementing innovative solutions for pathways of building equity in the community. Our efforts are strategically focused on the growing number of families fighting for economic and educational equity.
Many of the problems families and communities face are adaptive requiring legislation which can be litigious, time consuming and slow. Globally, the U.S. is at risk of declining economic competitiveness due to its continuing lower levels of educational attainment. The U.S. currently ranks 44th according to the quality of its mathematics and science education. The problem is exacerbated when you dig into the middle-class community.
There is a growing recognition of the importance of equity to economic development and upward mobility. High-quality education improves long-term academic and economic outcomes for children and communities. Therefore, Equity Now is committed to nurturing the full capacity of communities, helping them achieve their full economic and academic potential.
Education is the key to success in life, and teachers makes a lasting impact in the lives of their students.
