How One School is Fighting Poverty

In this article, you’ll learn about the Greene County Middle School, a school in North Carolina with a big heart.  The staff believes that, in order to help students improve and succeed, the community needs to be an extension of school life.  The school participates in many organized events to help the less fortunate and encourages everyone (educators, students, parents, community members) to participate.  The school nurse and social workers also visit the homes of those in poverty around the community.  Greene County Middle School also has one-to-one laptops so every student can participate in computer-assisted learning.  Check out this article to learn about more great practices from Green County Middle School.
