Rocketship Education Improving Learning

The Rocketship Education is an organization aimed at improving the standard of education in public charter schools. The organization is non-profit making. Rocket Education group has created a network that allows all stake holders in the education sector to work together. The network has created a friendly ecosystem for other community groups, parents, student, and the educators in order to improve the quality of education offered by public schools in San Jose. The organization targets two classes of students; first, students from low-income families and English language learners waiting to join college.

According to research carried out by The Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University, the performance of English language learners and poor students in San Jose has improved greatly. The success of these students is accredited to public charter schools that offer additional learning to these students. This improvement has influenced other districts to join in the program.

The effort of the public charter schools has been noted by investors who are contributing towards expanding the program. The Netflix CEO started a $100 million fund that will be assisting in upgrading the level of education locally. The Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has also donated system developers who will enable the public charter schools to acquire a personalized learning platform.

One of the key features of Rocketship Education is personalized learning. The Rocketeer students can receive personalized instructions. These instructions are issued to address their personal needs. The instructions are also tailored to accommodate the different learning styles of every student. The organization also offers a blended learning model to its students. The model integrates the traditional way of learning, technology, and tutoring. This model is effective since it allows every student in the Rocketship system to learn at their own pace.

Rocketship Education allows parents to get involved in educating their children. Parents can follow the progress of their children in school. Parents serve as role models to their children as well as assist them in doing their homework. Parents also inspire their children to be active members of the community, school, and at home.
