Researchers at Harvard University have demonstrated that students receiving private school scholarships progress by more than a full grade level in reading and math over their peers in public schools after only one year. Even greater gains are evidenced in subsequent years.
Scholarships provide educational opportunities to children from low-income families and allow parents/guardians to choose the best schools for their children.
Scholarship programs change lives. When parents sacrifice to pay part of the cost, education becomes a priority. Changes at home are often as dramatic as changes in a school.
