The Problem We Are Trying to Solve:
Alabama is ranked 49th out of 50 states in education and while the entire state suffers from educational inequity, the Black Belt region of Alabama has an achievement gap far wider than anywhere else. This past year at Mountain Brook High School, where zero percent of students receive free/reduced lunch, only 2.3 percent of fifth grade students tested below grade level on the mandated Alabama Science Exam. Just minutes away at Huffman High School in Birmingham, where over 65 percent of students receive free/reduced lunch, more than 77 percent of fifth graders fell below that same mastery level.
