Episode 1 – Be the Reason Every Child Has an Early Start

Pre-K isn't just a step; it's a transformative leap for your child's future. In this video, we explore the current pre-K enrollment landscape in Houston, discuss its far-reaching benefits, and emphasize the pivotal role it plays in shaping your child's cognitive and social development.

Episode 2 – Be the Reason: Every Child Reads at Grade Level

We firmly believe that there are essential elements which are key to setting students up for success in school: to feel safe and confident, top-notch teachers in the classroom, and access to high quality instruction materials. In this video, we focus on how these materials serve as the cornerstone for effective teaching and learning in reading and math, highlighting the power of these resources in shaping the future of our students and ensuring that every child has the tools they need to excel in school.

Episode 3 – Be the Reason Every Child Graduates with Limitless Possibilities

Today, only 22% of Harris County students complete a postsecondary certificate or program within six years of their high school graduation. To bridge this gap and equip our students for the future, school districts must make substantial investments in college and career readiness, encompassing skills like AI proficiency and advanced soft skills. In this video, we navigate the conversation about the future of our students and the workforce in Houston, where education beyond high school becomes the key to unlocking limitless possibilities.
