Statewide\, regardless of status\, the statistic is slightly higher at 55%\, yet BLCI students exceed the av erage for all segments with a college completion rate of 71%! \nNationally \, students' progress in reading and math continues to stall post pandemic \, especially for students of color who were more likely to have attended schools that stayed remote for longer and often recorded greater education al losses. Research suggests that high-dosage tutoring\, like the model of fered at BLCI\, can produce gains equivalent to about four months of learn ing\, yet a recent federal study found that just 37 percent of public scho ols reported offering such programs nationally. \nPlease support our ef forts with a tax-deductible donation and together we can #BeThePath to end ing poverty through education. \n \n DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20231129 DTSTAMP:20231108T200023Z DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20231128 LAST-MODIFIED:20231108T200023Z LOCATION: PRIORITY:5 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY;LANGUAGE=en-us:Giving Tuesday TRANSP:TRANSPARENT UID:040000008200E00074C5B7101A82E00800000000E0EF145D3912DA01000000000000000 01000000037B98C16132BCB4D992795E60736FA2B X-ALT-DESC;FMTTYPE=text/html:
