Local Businesses pledge money to public schools, and this money is later unlocked by students on the platform.
Students get on the platform to solve questions, and by doing so, slowly unlock the money pledged by the businesses. The problems can be assigned by the teachers for homework, as well. Lastly, for solving questions, students earn Zurrency, which allow them to buy prizes at the Zuriel store. A portion of the business pledges go toward backing this virtual currency.
Schools will recieve donations from the business as the pledges are unlocked by the students.
Underfunded schools regularly show lower standards of achievement
A big problem that impacts our schools is underfunding. This problem has 3 main impacts. The First is a lack of student motivation. Students in America are less motivated than ever. In fact, 7000 students drop out of school every day; that’s 1.2 million a year. That is an immense amount of brain power that is not reaching the high-level workforce of America. Secondly, teachers are less motivated to teach to their fullest potential due to low salaries. To make matters worse, teachers must use a part of their already low salaries to pay for writing supplies and other classroom essentials. In 1996, the average teacher earned 1.8% less than a similarly educated non-teacher. Now, that gap is 17%. This means that many highly educated people will not want to be teachers. The final impact is the lack of school resources. In neighborhoods, many schools cannot afford technology, tissues, or even textbooks. This leads to teachers having to pay for the students’ learning, multiplying the negative effect of under-funding. This problem won’t solve itself.
