When you see children progressing in the lane of education, as a teacher, you want them to continue to move in excellence as they reach their teenage years. For that reason, Rocketship Education has been cheering on every student that they have for their hard work and dedication to their curriculum. The school was founded in 2006 by John Danner and Preston Smith. The two wanted to work on helping low-income communities that would never get the chance to go to college. Of course, Rocketship Education has had its ups and downs over the years. But with the help of the communities in San Jose, the schools have gained popularity in the hearts of parents and their own faculty.
Rocketship Education believes in teaching lessons that go beyond the classroom. In other terms, their education emphasizes a structure that will be needed in a child’s life no matter where they are in the world. The school focuses on using music which helps children imagine what their goals and dreams are.
As a bonus, Rocketship Education teaches children about safety and how to recognize hazardous places. For instance, if a child is around a crowd of people who are breaking the laws, their lessons at Rocketship Schools will encourage them to call for help. Since the grand opening of the charter schools, donations have been piling in to support children who need to purchase technology for classes. Through their advanced learning, each child sets a goal that can be achieved before they leave the program. In the future, Rocketship Education may be available on a middle school and high school level. But for right now, the focus is on the children in K-5. See use of technology in Rocketship Education in this article.
Unfortunately, the Rocketship Schools cannot reach every child on their own. That’s why it’s important for parents and teachers to make a difference by inviting other parents to their board meetings. That’s a perfect reflection of the old saying about the village raising the child. Basically, it helps when parents and teachers continue to work together to support a child’s dream. With that noted, Rocketship Education believes that everyone should pitch in to support this generation.

Along with her husband Dick, Betsy DeVos founded in 1989 the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. Their primary focus is on education and Arts & Culture. In 2015, they spent $10 million on organizations like The Potter’s House, Partnership for Educational Justice, Success Academy Charter Schools, and many more. They also donated $22 million “to launch the DeVos Institute of Arts Managements at the University of Maryland.” This Organization was to strengthen the business side of art organizations. Donations also go to civic, community, leadership, Public Policy, Health & Human Services, and churches. What is remarkable about their donations is that they put no restrictions on how the organizations use the received donations. What they want to see is that the donations are used to make a difference. The DeVos donated $200,000 to the Potter’s House. When looking into the Potter’s House their own children were of school age. It was hard for them to see the struggles parents, many low-income families, of the Potter’s House Christian School to keep their children in a save, loving environment where learning is exciting! Tuition was a real sacrifice for them. The DeVos were constantly drawn back to that school and finally they decided to support individuals there. That commitment continues to grow today. The Partnership for Educational Justice received $400,000 from the DeVos family Their projects challenge unfair educational policies and propose common sense solutions. Policies in education should be based on evidence and common sense. Sometimes things that seen obvious are the things we overlook. Their commitment is to strengthen their schools by pursing these means. Another DeVos commitment was $150,000 to the Success Academy Charter Schools. The original school founded in 2006 was offered in Harlem for Kindergarten and 1st grade scholars. In 2008, because of their success and high parent demands to send their children there, three new elementary schools opened. In 2015 they opened two new middle schools. Today there are 41 free public schools, including high schools all founded on the principle that every child can succeed.
