Rocketship Education has played a large role in the development of a safe and good institution that facilitates growth and overall learning. Rocketship Education and their chain of charter schools have gone well beyond what most schools usually offer to stand out and be one of the foremost institutions in the country.
Even though Rocketship Education is always perceived in an incredibly positive light, a recent story that was published did not portray the institution in the light that most people know and view Rocketship Education. The piece authored by Anya Kamentez spoke about the manner in which education is imparted at the institution, but also outlined some of the tougher challenges that are imposed on children, not accounting for the actual scenarios in which they are implemented.
There are of course certain ways in which the article sheds light on some of the much prevalent issues faced by Charter Schools, and the manner in which Rocketship Education tries to remedy them. The article, however, proceeded to talk about some of the practices being implemented at Rocketship Education and the path that is being taken for their student’s development.
The article, which may have been in good faith sparked an outrage among parents, students, and alumni of Rocketship Education. The collective opinion was that the school was not showcased in the best light, and the article did not cover the broad range of values and interests that are encouraged at the school. The general opinion was that many of the drawbacks of the school were looked at through a magnifying glass, while the positives of the school were simply skimped over. This created a somewhat warped impression of the school, and seemed like a complete stray away from what the general perception of the school is.
There are of course those who are stuck in the middle and torn between their idea of the school and some of the issues that are being faced. This section of the audience mostly believes that the issues laid out were not only pertaining to Rocketship Education but Charter Schools in general, irrespective of whether this particular institution was facing it or not.
