Urban Ed

Here in the United States students and families desire the best that life has to offer. For most a quality education remains a vehicle of hope and takes on many forms – both public and private. Some students want to attend schools like Saint Timothy’s in Compton, CA where the scholastic program is rigorous and the environment is safe and secure. However, tuition expenses, though minimal, are beyond the reach of neighborhood families hoping for more individual attention than the local large public schools are able to provide. Other students are able to attend a quality public school but are unable to afford the expenses associated with student government, fine arts programs, and athletics. Students who are involved in these programs perform better academically and stay in school longer. For a Reason seeks to provide the resources necessary to secure the best possible learning environment for at-risk or impoverished students.
