This partnership with VisionQuest 20/20 is a key component to helping United Way meet it's mission of breaking the cycle of poverty for local families. If a child can't see clearly, and nobody knows - including the child, how can we expect them to learn? Studies show that when a child cannot see, they are more likely to suffer in school. These academic challenges include achieving proficiency in reading. This is of particular concern because 1 in 6 children who aren't reading proficiently in third grade do not graduate from high school on time. The cost of remedial education is extraordinarily expensive to the school, tax-payers, and the student... and if they don't graduate from high school, they're less likely to find a job and earn a living wage. This program may be one critical step is breaking the vicious cycle of poverty.
