Four out of five third graders in Southern California can't read at grade level. 70% of students from Southern California's 2,000 public schools are English language learners. And due to the lack of additional resources students that do not receive additional education support such as attending after school programs are 57% more likely to drop out of school and 27% more likely to become arrested.
