Projects in the USA

The cost of education in the United States per pupil per year averages around $10,000 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor. Unless a student in the United States decides to attend a private school, funding for public schools comes primarily from the state (and the taxes of state residents) with some funding from local government. The federal government provides much smaller amounts of money, generally dedicated to construction, transportation, or similar non-curricular purposes. State residents can send their children to these schools at no cost (though they must generally attend school within their own residential district or pay tuition fees.)
While $10,000 educate one child in the U.S., ETC has been contributing to the education of at least 200 children in poor villages abroad with the same amount every year.
Educate The Children's activities in the USA have involved hands-on projects, seminars or workshops and tutoring of children with low academic level for their age. Occasionally, our organization participates in special projects where students experience extraordinary circumstances during their school year.

MiniGolf outing with ESL- English as a Second Language students

CARPENTERSVILLE, Illinois U.S.A. (2002)

Unfortunately, some Hispanic children in the USA are being passed from grade to grade without adequately learning what they should mainly due to their shortcomings with the English language.   Often the children do not get help with their homework and assignments from their parents because of their parent’s inability to adequately understand English.   Many of these children do learn to speak English but have difficulty reading and writing in English.

Educate the Children has been working with a school in Carpentersville, Illinois and has initiated an after school program where college students majoring in Education under the supervision of a Teacher are providing educational assistance to Hispanic children.   The students are taught English for an hour, given assistance with their homework for an hour and then have some recreation time while they wait for their parents to pick them up.
