$1 Million of College Savings for Students

One million dollars.

That’s how much JFYNetWorks has saved college-bound students.

How? By helping them build the skills to meet college entry requirements. Our high school-based blended learning programs have helped thousands of students improve their skills and eliminate over 2000 remedial college courses. The savings in tuition and fees have now passed the one million dollar mark.

A million dollars. The idea has deep American resonance. No amount of inflation can dim the luster of its gold-rush gleam.

Today’s gold rush is college. A two-year degree is worth $300,000 more in lifetime earnings than a high school diploma. A four-year degree gains $800,000.

JFYNet Program Prepares Students for College and Career

JFYNet Program Prepares Students for College and Career

by Cathie Maglio, Blended Learning SPECIALIST
As a Blended Learning Specialist at JFYNetWorks, I go into schools and work with teachers in their classes to prepare students for college, a career, or the military by strengthening their skills in math and reading.

The JFYNet program consists of administering diagnostic assessments to measure each student’s skill gaps and then assigning an online instructional curriculum to respond to the identified needs. We use the same assessments and placement levels that community colleges use as our standard. After all that is done my job is to monitor online activity and work with the teacher to make sure that each student is making the most progress possible. I do that by visiting the school on a regular basis and communicating with teachers via email between visits.

Achievement Gap? Which One?

College and Career Readiness through Blended Learning

And what about our older youth? It’s not just inner-city schools that need to raise their game. Even our best suburban schools fall short in the international student achievement sweepstakes, says Arthur Levine, former president of Columbia Teachers College (“The Suburban Education Gap,” WSJ 11/15/12).

“30 years after ‘A Nation at Risk’ not one major urban district has been turned around and many of our suburban districts are losing ground,” writes Levine. “We have settled on a path of global mediocrity for our most affluent schools and national marginality for failing inner-city schools.”
