AT&T Launches Aspire Request for Proposal for Funding Organizations with Proven Success in Keeping Kids in School
Dallas, December 16, 2013 /3BL Media/ – It takes caring professionals and a relentless focus on results to make sure students stay in school and succeed. That’s why next month, AT&T* will launch the 2014 AT&T Aspire High School Success Initiative Request for Proposal to keep kids in the classroom.
At AT&T, we’re all about raising the bar. In education, that means being part of a national movement to set big goals for improving student success. It’s an effort that starts locally, at the school around the corner or the community center down the street.
It only takes 5 minutes of watching my kids play with tablets and mobile phones to quickly realize the lure the digital world has on young minds. These technologies are intuitive, hands-on, and engaging, but more often than not, I’m negotiating with my kids over how much time they “have to spend” on educational apps before they can get back to what they want to play.
