Gaps, Gaps, Gaps.

Just some more #MondayMotivation for you this week. Only 9% of students from the lowest-income quartile earn a college degree. How can we solve this?

At our bag drop rallies, we try to instill in the kids we meet a sense of empowerment. Statistics mean nothing to the individual. Every kid is capable of graduating high school and moving on to college. They are capable of earning a degree and bringing their special talents to the world. They deserve the outlet that shows them how to use these talents to the best of their ability.

But first, they have to know they can do it. They have to know they deserve it. Every kid needs that.
