Where will America’s next generation of business innovators come from? According to a recent article in PR Newswire, some of them are to be found among Brooklyn’s low income high school students. That’s what their futures hold in store for them if Keith Mann has anything to do with it.
Mann’s company, Dynamics Search Partners, sponsored a fundraiser in March, 2015 to finance student testing. This fundraising effort was conducted on behalf of Uncommon Schools. Uncommon Schools is a nonprofit management company operating more than 40 charter schools located in New York and nearby states. This event raised money for the new Brooklyn newest school.
Dynamics Search Partners has already given some $10,000 for student tests such as advanced placement and PSAT exams. The money raised helps expand the program. This enables students to better prepare not only to graduate high school, but to advance to successful college careers. Mann stressed that this is the goal. As he put it, the aim is to close the achievement gap low income students have traditionally faced in education.
