From Asa Mercer Middle School
One of our students had missed many days of school due to his family's struggle with homelessness the whole year, moving to whichever relatives would have him and his siblings, and they were often separated from their mother. With the support of InvestED, the student was able to enroll in a summer school program that helped him catch up. His triumph came in June, when he was promoted to the next grade.
