Low-income families go through tough times in San Jose such as the housing prices that have hit the sky. The families have been segregated from the rich. The future of the poor is more shady and darker in this region. Due to this, there is the need to flip the coin by strengthening education in the public sector. The project should target low-income communities. Rocketship Education has been in the forefront of providing equal education chances to students from all social cycles. They are public charter schools that have ensured that every student from the poor communities accesses the three-year college education. Since the first launch of this program in 2007, 25 public charter schools have been built.
Andrea Agassi’s Contribution towards Equal Education to All Children
Rocketship Rise Academy is located in Washington. Andrea Agassi recently launched it. The world champion tennis player mentioned that kids from poor communities deserved quality education. He also noted that after his career tennis had hit rock-bottom, he needed to find another purpose and have control over his life. That explains why he developed the Charter Schools. His decision was aimed at giving back to children who never had choices in their lives. Their environment didn’t give them a choice to pick for their future.
With the help of his co-managing founder Robert Turner, they have managed to create Turner-Agassi Charter Schools Facilities Fund. Funds have been channeled into 69 charter schools throughout America through this organization. The duo got no intention of stopping this funding project.

According to Preston Smith, the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rocketship, this learning style ensures that parents are involved in the learning process. The system ensures that teachers who are ready to offer intensive and quality services are employed in these schools. It has been appreciated by parents as they get to engage teachers who handle their children. They also tend to have an experience of whatever their kids will go through at school.

Betsy DeVos’ name is synonymous to education reforms. The wife of Dick DeVos is the chair of the “Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation”. Betsy accomplishes most of her philanthropic activities through this foundation.
Mrs. DeVos’ Opinion on School Choice
One of the biggest contributions that Mrs. DeVos has made to the education sector is to champion the philosophy of school choice. Currently, the number of parents who have taken their children to educational-choice programs has increased. Many people have come to see the ineffectiveness of the traditional schooling system and are accepting reforms such as vouchers, education savings accounts, and tax credits.DeVos’s involvement in education reforms was sparked through a personal experience. Mrs. DeVos happened to visit a school in Grand Rapids, the “Potter’s House Christian School”. During her visit she encountered parents who were struggling to raise fees for their children to study at this safe and convenient institution. Mrs. DeVos’ heart went out to these parents who had no choice but to enroll their children to a school that their meager earnings could afford to pay. Immediately, Betsy and her husband Dick started supporting children at the school. They started by supporting a few students and this escalated to larger contributions for a huge number of students.Their commitment to education reform did not end with their philanthropic work at Potter’s House. In 1990, Dick DeVos was elected to the “State Board of Education”. On the other hand, Mrs. DeVos had established a foundation for providing scholarships to low-income parents. The foundation enabled parents to school their children in the best educational institutions. Since this program was only accessible to a few, the DeVoses wanted to make a nationwide impact and this is why they begun embarking on education reforms.According to Betsy DeVos, one of her biggest successes has been in Florida. The state has a tax-credit scholarship program that has been adopted by over 50,000 students. Florida has the longest history of enforcing educational choice among all the states in the U.S.

The 20th century saw major improvements in the way that cancer is treated. In the 1930s and 1940s, new treatments, such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy and advanced surgical techniques, came online, promising to dramatically lower the incidence of mortality for various types of cancer. These treatments proved to be a watershed in the survivability of many different forms of the disease. Some forms of cancer went from being almost universally fatal to being highly treatable and even curable. Diseases such as melanoma, breast cancer and prostate cancer went from being serious killers to merely inconvenient chronic ailments.
But despite the dramatic improvements in survivability that these new treatments brought with them, they also had a terrible cost. The majority of these treatments were administered almost to the point where they killed the patient. This was an unfortunate but necessary consequence of the ability of these treatments to kill malignant cells being completely dose-dependent. The higher the dose, the more lethal the effect of the treatments was on the tumors they were intended to target.
But the side effects associated with this type of lethal bombardment of the patient’s body were truly grievous. These included such problems as neuropathy, dementia and severe heart problems. In many cases, the chemotherapy itself was responsible for the patient’s ultimate death, rather than them being killed by the disease. This led many researchers to look for new solutions to treating cancer, ones that would not involve such horrible collateral damage.
One of those researchers was a man by the name of Clay Siegall. While working at pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb, Clay Siegall began developing a completely revolutionary class of drugs, known as antibody drug conjugates. By using synthetic human antibodies, antibody drug conjugates enable large doses of cytotoxin to be delivered directly to the site of the malignant tissues, decreasing side effects to almost unnoticeable levels, while drastically increasing the effectiveness of the treatment itself.
Today, Dr. Siegall is recognized the world over as one of the key figures in the development of this revolutionary new class of drugs. Antibody drug conjugates have saved thousands of lives and promise to make cancer a disease that will claim far fewer victims in the future.
