Kairos is, as described in it’s mission, “an education focused non-profit attacking Portland’s persistent achievement hap through innovative pedagogy, community collaboration and family partnership.” It works to eliminate the racial achievement gap through a K-5 Learning Academy, a Family Connection program and a Early Learning Network. The following pictures and drawings were done by Kindergarteners and first graders.
“We want to bring the voices to the table who are systematically left out. We want to change the tide of the achievement gap that continues to deny access to opportunity to thousands of youth. Opportunity that generations of people fought for…died for. We can do better.”
