Many argue that our public education system is broken for this segment of our population. Public schools are either not set up to accommodate them or are already stressed in their present financial realities. EARN can help but only with your help. EARN places more of an emphasis on individualism, accessibility and end to end solutions vs a one size fits all environment.
