From increased grades to drastically better behavior to higher standardized test results, students are benefitting from participating in Civil Society programs. Numbers don’t lie, so here’s what the data have to say…
On average, students working with Civil Society. ‘s programs being administered by Civil Society (a Houston-based ), saw their grades go up by an average of 24 points, from a 59 to an 83. That’s the difference between failing and college-bound!
Similarly, that same group of students in the Civil Society program saw a decrease of 89% in their frequency of disciplinary referrals, with the vast majority of students going to zero disciplinary actions. Entering the program, no student had a frequency of zero disciplinary referrals.
Students in HISD’s Ascending To Men program, which uses Civil Society curricula, showed improvements on their STAAR tests of 6-12 months in reading and 7 to 16 months in math above and beyond what would otherwise be predicted.
