The Road Ahead for Sto-Rox Grads

June 14, 2017 0:45

At Sto-Rox, where about 77 percent of the students live in poverty, the realities of preparing students for the future are tough. About half of the school’s students go directly into the workforce upon graduation, often in low-paying jobs in the service sector. The school is struggling to integrate ed tech into its curriculum to help prepare students for a better future, but it has been a steep climb. Beck talks about the realities of preparing his students for what they will face upon graduation.

Coverage of learning through integrated designs for school innovation is supported in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York at www.carnegie.org. Education Week retains sole editorial control over the content of this coverage.
