This School Got Rid Of Homework And Saw Dramatic Improvments!

Just four years ago, Clintondale High School was one of the worst performing schools in the state of Michigan. Failure rates were high, and college admissions were low. Principal Greg Green knew something had to change, but he wasn't sure what.

That is, until he discovered the "flipped classroom" model. After implementing this new teaching method campus-wide, failure rates have dropped 25%, and college admission has gone up 17%.

Give Girls a Fair Chance in School Sports!

Despite Title IX, which requires high schools to offer equal opportunities and services to female athletes, girls in sports continue to receive only 41% of all athletic participation opportunities — including subpar equipment, facilities, and scheduling.

Urge the Secretary of Health and Human Services to hold schools accountable by enacting the High School Data Transparency Acts.

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
