Recognizing that Duval County is at a critical moment for improving public education, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund launched the ONE by ONE campaign to unite the community behind a common vision to ensure that all students graduate from high school ready for college and the workforce.
The sobering reality is that one in three students in Duval County does not graduate from high school on time or at all. High school students from low-income families are six times more likely to drop out than students from higher income families.
Yet people in Jacksonville believe in the power of education! Join the campaign…
The campaign begins with ONE in THREE, a multimedia art exhibit that features 20 Duval County students. Through large-format photographs and videos, the students’ stories demonstrate the power of an engaged community that works hand-in-hand with the school district to improve student success. The exhibit will begin at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in September 2011. It will travel the entire Jacksonville community, one neighborhood at a time, starting in January 2012.
