We at Revolution Prep believe education is the key to solving many of the problems we face today in the world. Education improves understanding that can lead to empathy. It amplifies personal and social awareness that leads to change. It creates opportunities to make a difference in the world. This belief has been part of our core since we were founded 18 years ago. This belief is core to our social mission. It is why we work with schools to identify low income children who could benefit from our tutoring and offer scholarships. It is why never turned anyone away for an inability to pay. This belief is also why we seek to learn more and do more.
We stand against racism. We stand against violence. We stand with educators as they work tirelessly to not just educate, but advocate for the children they teach. We stand with those who want this country to not just do better but to be better and actions speak louder than words. We have taken the following steps to reflect and recommit to our core beliefs around equity and access. We will be holding focus groups to listen to the community and understand where we can make positive changes both internally and externally. We will create a task force that is focused on identifying opportunities to not just participate in the conversation but be part of the solution.
Once we have learned from our colleagues, both within our organization and those we work with in the greater education community, we will quickly work to implement the recommendations. We have been deeply committed to this work for 18 years and we see this as an opportunity to increase that commitment.
As educators ourselves, we understand that being lifelong learners is critical. We will embrace this opportunity to learn from our employees, students, families, counselors, and schools as we work to improve not only what we do but how we do it.
