Studies have shown that children brought-up in small families elicit greater profit from access to an increased allocation of the family’s resources, including parental attention, which, consequently, enriches their cognitive development and educational accomplishments. Our aim is the construction of strong communities of students based on the proverbial village model. After all, the adage says it takes a village, and by reimagining this idea, we stand to kill a flock of birds with one stone. By building this community; we ameliorate resource gaps, learning disparities, and sociological ruptures, the result of community and familia disjunction.

” They indicated that these programs were regularly effective at generating several advantages for participants, while programs lacking these attributes yielded none of the aforementioned outcomes. Also, a study following approximately 3,000 low-income, ethnically diverse elementary and middle school students from eight states in from both small urban and rural centers, as well as major metropolitan communities found that regular participation in high-quality after-school programs was linked to significant gains in standardized test scores and work habits as well as reductions in behavior problems among disadvantaged students.
Students also benefit from programs that foster peer interactions in project based learning environments and by presenting the material in a culturally relevant way that they can contextualize in manners applicable to their lives. Successful initiatives attempt to discover what students think in relation to the problems being analyzed, discussing their misconceptions sensitively, and giving them creating situations that foster in-depth reflection and appropriate space to allow them to readjust their ideas and expand their conceptual stores. Also, research literature is beginning to demonstrate that writing, and the cognitive skills involved in writing, play a critical role in determining the academic outcomes of college students. Preliminary data suggest a measurable academic advantage in college, associated with stronger SAT writing over reading scores. Specifically, writing skills appreciably predicts first-year university grades and long-term analysis indicates that writing continues to substantially predict college student’s grades over time.
Yes, we are ten pages in and still on the problem, because it is a tremendous one, with seemingly countless dimensions. One of which, not touched on is, the benefits of partnerships promoting equal education at home, as a means of preparing future generations to forge beneficial partnerships in the global community. While it may not be on the surface, this proposal has been hugely influenced by Global Citizen year the work of Global Citizen Year and ideas of Fernando Reimers. Both, GCY and professor Reimers promote ideas and inspire actions in hopes of bridging global cultures and consequently fostering a bridge to peace. We ardently believe that if given a chance, if provided some respite from the fear, stress, and uncertainty that impoverished communities are steeped in, young people from all kinds of neighborhoods, Including very poor and ethnic minority communities, will prove to be magnificent and inspiring leaders of an ever-changing, intimately interrelated International system.
