The United States of America is a country where one can strive for the American dream; where one's dreams are attainable. Although that is partially correct, we forget who it is directed to. The education system plays an important role in actually achieving the American Dream but, unfortunately, the education system is classist thus leaving many children from being able to achieve that dream. Quality education should not be a privilege for only those who can afford it to receive it. Seeing that the children of today are our future, we must give each child the ability to strive for success; equally. Aim High is a non-profit organization that works toward evening educational inequality at a local scale. It is a five-week summer enrichment program offered to low income communities in the Bay Area for no charge. The program, offered to grades six through nine, “helps middle schoolers build academic confidence, discover a love of learning, and develop the skills they need to thrive in high school and in life” (aimhigh.org). Aim High opens doors that were previously closed to kids attending underfunded schools, fostering interest in STEM, humanities, and the arts.  Together we can give low income students around the bay better education and attention. It is our job to foster these young minds and not let anything get in the way of their dreams and success.
