#5 Educational/School Programming

Programming in schools does not address the whole child or consider adjustments that may need to be made for different student populations.

Why it matters

Due to state programming requirements and a lack of funding, students often don't receive high-quality, developmentally appropriate academic and extracurricular programming. Students are not receiving a well-rounded curriculum that meets the academic, social, and physical needs of the whole child during and around the school day.

What does "good" look like?

Students have access to school programs that meet their unique needs and set them up for current and future success.

How could technology solve this?

One idea is a platform to share resources across schools (local or nation wide) where curriculum can be tagged based on where it would be most appropriate (i.e. for students excelling in x, struggling in y, etc).
