We believe that all American children deserve a world-class education that prepares students to compete and create in a growingly digital world. Puerto Rico unfortunately, has been left far behind its fellow US contemporaries. According to a report published by the Heritage Foundation, ninety-one percent of Puerto Rico’s eighth-grade students score well below the basic level in math, reading, and science among other subjects, in a national comparison within the United States. Overall, Puerto Rican students rank at the bottom in international comparisons below Mexico and Thailand (http://report.heritage.org/ib5001). Tech My School is dedicated to addressing the many issues facing the poor educational performance of the island. We partner with local schools and provide them with world-class training, resources, and student empowerment for FREE. There is so much to grapple with, such as a lack of 21st-century tools, a huge literacy gap, negligible resources, teacher attrition due to low pay, and a number of other issues within the Puerto Rican education system. Here at Tech My School, we understand that education is a human right and should not be a privilege based on where you were born and your family's social-economic status. We are raising money in order to serve the students of Puerto Rico and need your help. Please visit our website (www.techmyschool.org) for more information and ways you can contribute to helping the students of Puerto Rico.
