About The Event
In observation of Mardi Gras 2021, High Voltage is hosting a book drive. We invite the community to celebrate with us by donating books. In a national survey, conducted by the RAND Corporation in conjunction with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, it was said that students are less prepared for grade-level work now compared to this point last year. It found that in high-poverty schools, 1 in 3 teachers said their students are "significantly" behind. The Stanford researchers estimate that the average American student has already lost half a year of learning in reading and over a full year of learning in math since the pandemic began.
