Measuring Success

FY19 surveys of Freedom School scholars  found that 65% of scholars liked to read, 81% liked talking about what they read, 86% reported they read many different kinds of books, 100% reported wanting to go to college, 98% reported they can achieve their goals, and 89% reported they believed they can make a difference.

Behavioral benchmarks:
77% of scholars reported they were willing to listen to different opinions.
68% of scholars reported standing up for what they think is fair.
63% of scholars reported that they can solve problems without yelling at others.
68% of scholars reported that they know how to solve arguments without fighting.
79% of scholars reported knowing how to cooperate to solve problems           

CDF utilized the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Reading Inventory to measure scholars’ reading achievement during summer CDF Freedom Schools program.  We found that 76.7% of scholars did not experience summer learning loss.

While currently at a 60% parent participation rate, we are striving to increase this number by soliciting different workshop topic ideas that resonate with the needs of the community.
