The Educational Divide blog is created by Colorado Youth for a Change. Colorado Youth for a change is working to help in-school youth stay in school and out-of-school youth get back into school. Because of our experiences supporting youth in multiple schools and school districts across Colorado, we have decided to bring a focused effort to sharing our understanding, as well as our data. We hope that people will find our observations and insights valuable. We also hope to connect with broader research and practices and show that helping youth with school is important, not only for them, but for the communities we live in as well.
