Data collected by organizations such as the United Way show that this economic disadvantage often translates into an academic disadvantage. To that end, a student’s family income is one of the most prominent predictors of that student’s SAT score. Also, children of homes with less income are less likely to pursue higher education.
Project Readiness has the mission of providing students with a year’s complement of age-appropriate school supplies and a new backpack.
