Review for Diamond Educational Excellence Partnership (DEEP), San Diego, CA, USA
DEEP is committed to helping underrepresented students become reading proficient by third grade which is fundamental to future educational progress. I personally cannot imagine what my childhood or life would have been like without the ability to read. Beyond the pure joy of reading and discovering new worlds, it is as basic a need as food, shelter, and health care. DEEP's holistic approach that engages all stakeholders including parents, schools, and students has demonstrated outstanding results. Education is widely recognized as the key intervention that can break the poverty cycle for the most marginalized children. DEEP keeps the doors of opportunity open for children at-risk of falling behind. DEEP is critically needed, proven effective, and a valuable resource for families and schools in Southeastern San Diego.
