School Success Corps Concept Paper

School Success Corps Concept Paper
 

To prevent a “Lost Generation” of students, EGC and City Year make the case for a student-centered framework for deploying people-powered student and teacher supports to schools at a critical time.

COVID-19 and its social, health, and economic consequences present an unparalleled challenge to education in the United States. Young people, their families, our schools and our teachers have never faced this magnitude and intensity of disruption to education. In response, student, family, teacher and community efforts have been heroic, inventive, and inspiring.

Despite this, growing evidence of student disengagement, instructional loss, emotional distress, educator burnout, declines in school attendance and grades, and decreases in college enrollment show that the country is in an educational crisis with potentially deep, long-term consequences. We are at risk of a COVID-19 “Lost Generation” of young people who will experience delays in, and ultimately declines in their academic and social-emotional development and educational attainment, depriving our communities of their tremendous potential.

We have the evidence base, practical know-how, and resources to combat the negative education impacts.
