No Excuses University
The school is part of a program called No Excuses University. According to the organization, a lot of children growing up in lower income areas don’t really consider going to college an option, and, as a result, don’t work as hard to do well in school. Classrooms adopt a school which is then featured in classroom activities.
Meredith McCraw of Bluebonnet Elementary School in Round Rock, Texas chose her fiance’s alma mater, Penn State, for her kindergarten class. Penn State memorabilia is displayed around the classroom, even decorating their door.
While the choice of Penn State may seem odd for a school in Texas, recent developments may explain what’s going on.
