The Children, the Tutors, and The Constitution of the United States:
People who can't read, can't read the Constitution, and the tutors in this Project fulfill an essential function of American citizenship by teaching children to read.
Moreover, at the end of each semester, the undergraduates in this Project autograph and give to the children they have tutored a pocket-size copy of The United States Constitution.
Funding & Costs of the National Literacy Program:
The National Education Project, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, which is supported by donations from private individuals, as well as by contributions from corporations, foundations, and law firms. Please see Previous Donors.
The National Education Project is actively seeking one medium-size city in America willing to establish 20 tutoring programs, which, in turn, will provide 145,000 hours of tutoring to the children in the elementary schools of that city in a five-year period and raise reading and math scores across the entire city.
Twenty tutoring programs cost $1,500,000, and will provide 145,000 hours of tutoring to the children in the elementary schools of one city over five years. These funds are used for two purposes:
To provide 20 grants to colleges and universities in one city in the amount of $50,000 per grant (that is, 20 grants x $50,000 per grant = $1,000,000); and
To underwrite the management and administrative costs of operating 20 tutoring programs in one city during the five-year grant period.
As a result, this Project can produce one hour of tutoring for less than $11.00, including overhead; that is, $1,500,000 divided by 145,000 hours of tutoring produced in one city in a five-year period.
Contributions to The National Education Project, Inc. are tax-deductible, and we would certainly appreciate your help.
