How would you use the demographic data pertaining to students and their families to develop a school mission and goals for Harpo Allen Middle School?

The All Stars Project-Chicago SWOT Analysis Through the All Stars Project, over 53, 820 inner-city youth are given opportunities to transform their lives through the power of performance. This nonprofit reaches some of our nation’s most marginalized youth in six different cities: New York, Bridgeport, Chicago, Dallas, and the San Francisco Bay Area. The All Stars Project of Chicago has many strengths, including its direct response to the surrounding community’s need, and its status as a privately funded nonprofit; which overshadow its weaknesses of having a small staff and office space. There are many opportunities for growth including expanding partnerships with Chicago Public Schools and other similar organizations, and eventually expanding
The main argument is about how income inequality affects everyone and how production is also a disadvantage. Although the San Joaquin Valley produces millions of dollars of produce a year, many people in the valley are living in poverty. In fact Merced is the top fourth county in California with, unemployment, poverty, child poverty, and food insecurity. Part of the reason is that the youth do not have many programs or resources to keep them in school and occupied. Many of them will not graduate high school, and end up incarcertated, and get pregnant in their teen year.

If community oriented programs are not becoming more of a priority for the at-risk children in the community, those children have a greater chance of entering the system and not leaving it. An example of this type of program is the Project Positive Action through Holistic Education. The program helps the students grow a link to schools. Project Positive Action through Holistic Education includes “peer teaching, school-pride campaigns, peer counseling services, job fairs, and career planning (Araki, 2003)” to help students prepare for the future and keep them out of trouble in the present. Juveniles should be able to leave the detention centers when finished with their sentences and join the real world without being pulled back into the Criminal Justice System.

After reading, The Other Wes Moore, it intrigued me how so many of our young people are growing up in families where the parent or parents cannot provide a suitable environment that provides fundamental resources. This book talks about two males that could have ended up with the same fate only if there had not been any assistance to guide one of them on a different path. It is evident that our environment is an essential factor in how we adapt and attain the life that we live. With limited resources, our youth has become a statistic of their environments. As these generations continuously extend, minorities have become the target of a huge issue such as teen pregnancy.
A historical example of the use of enforcement and regulation of the poor is vagrancy laws. Emerging in England, vagrancy laws were prominent in 1349 after the Black Death resulted in a significant labour shortage (Esmonde, 2002). Legislation was enacted at this time to protect landowners by ensuring wages remained reasonable, making the refusal of work a criminal offence for the able-bodied, and restricting the solicitation of alms (Esmonde, 2002). According to Esmonde (2002), this was the beginning of criminalizing able-bodied individuals who were unemployed – the 'undeserving ', while providing relief to those unable to work due disability, age, or mobility – the 'deserving '.
I remember waking up that morning, feeling paralyzed, as well as a rush of emotions. Feeling uneasy but ambitious, demoralized but delighted, timid but fearless; it was the day. Not just any day but the most anticipated day for all the second graders: Bake Sale day. As I was told by my teacher, Ms. Ash, this Bake Sale was at the utmost importance, because it would be funding our field trip later that year. I had always been a soft- spoken individual so the thought of talking to another individual; nevertheless, trying to sell an item to another individual on whether our cookies were better than the third graders was daunting and the burden of the field trip only added to the pressure.
Everbody does have the abilty to affect others, and so do I. In this summer, I served as a teacher in a summer camp, teaching primary school students. Throughout my service learning experience, I gained a lot of insights and reflections. I served, and at the same time I learnt. I have comparatively significant changes in two aspects, including my passion in helping the underprivileged children and adolescents, as well as my problem-solving and decision-making capacities.
Renovation of the President’s and Executive Vice President’s offices were not in alignment with the broad objective of Woody 2000 project. It was included in the project just to make use of the opportunity that since other activities were being carried out, then why not include the renovation in the project as well. But since it did not serve the project’s objective, but just added to the project cost and time, it wasn’t a good idea. b. Write a simple project scope statement.
For a while, imagine you stay in an environment which is constant in all terms whether its seasons, routine, the way you do your dress or edibles you intake; everything is just same as it was the previous day. Wouldn 't it become intolerable to survive in such circumstances, snatching vividness and our zeal & goal to live life? This interminable assumption gives us the thoughtful sketch of an importance of diversity in our lives. Diversity is a wizard which keeps the human race going, which we face in the form of globalization and better understanding towards it is something we want to attain through global education.
