Being a Contribution
Putting words into action
At John L. Scott, we’re committed to supporting education initiatives that will close the minority achievement gap. As part of the celebration of our 90th anniversary in business, we’re sponsoring several scholarships for diverse teacher candidates to obtain their teaching certificate through the University of Washington College of Education, amounting to $90,000 in investment.
This project was inspired by the “A Path to Equity in Education” program created by the Institute of Urban Education at the University of Missouri (IUE). Research shows that if a Black student has two or more Black teachers, their chance of going to college increases by 32%. By supporting efforts to increase teacher diversity, we hope to have a ripple effect on encouraging more students to aspire to a college education and achieve their goals.
