Critical Educational Needs for Central Elementary Students

Posted By Stacy Roby for Lawyers Club's Community Outreach Committee, Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Education has become reliant on technology and this can be expensive, especially for economically disadvantaged schools such as Central Elementary in City Heights. The twice-yearly Lawyers Club of San Diego’s Read-In is a powerful way for Lawyers Club members to share their career journey and act as role models. Read-In volunteers strive to inspire students and to instill the belief that with focus and determination, they can succeed in achieving a professional career of their choice.

Public funding in education is lacking and the current critical need for Central Elementary classrooms is headphones for every student. Computers, iPads, and Chromebooks are used daily for learning programs, research, and assessment testing which provides data on students’ academic progress. With this knowledge, teachers can provide instruction to improve areas of weakness and enhance students’ strengths.

In 2020, Central Elementary needs 600 sets of headphones (specifically, Califone 3068AV Switchable Stereo/Mono headphones). For less than the cost of two Starbucks drinks, you can donate one headphone set. If you have a group of people wanting to help the needs of the students, the cost is less. Even if you are unable to attend the Read-In on February 28, 2020, please consider donating to help this underserved student population (donate here).

As an affiliate member of Lawyers Club of San Diego with eleven years as an educator, I have a first-hand understanding of the impacts caused by lack of educational funding, and of the desperate need for the educational tools that assist teachers in providing stimulating instruction. My philosophy is and has always been, “Education is the Key to Freedom.” Your donation will help level the educational playing field for these children.
