The team at Rocketship Education recently reflected on the lessons they learned from their first ten years in operation. As a program designed to remove the gap found in the quality of education offered to students from financially sound backgrounds and those who come from low-income backgrounds, they place a lot of focus on making sure they meet the needs of their students. The objective of Rocketship Education is in align with their concepts of growth and empowerment. After ten years, they know it takes a commitment on the part of their teachers and parents to make a difference in the quality of education their students receive.
The team at Rocketship Education also took a look at how their program met the needs of children with disabilities and those coming from minority backgrounds. To facilitate these needs they developed a program around the premise of meaningful inclusion, which meant they also had to meet the needs of students who had behavioral challenges. They found the program worked best when students could remain with their classrooms in a flexible teaching environment.
In addition to meeting the educational needs of their students, the team at Rocketship Education also encouraged parents to take an active role in the educational process. When it came to making changes within a community, they found that the voice of parents carried more weight with local officials. The power these parents have over what type of education low-income students will receive can be seen in the movement in San Jose that led to the opening of better quality middle and high schools for their children.
Rocketship Education is built on the pillars of parent power, personalized learning and talent development. Since launching its first charter school in 2007, the network of Rocketship schools has grown to where they now have more than 20 schools in located in high-risk areas in four states. Not only do they want to eliminate the educational gap for children from low-income families, but they also want to help those communities develop workable models for their public schools that will allow every student to achieve their full potential.
The 2018 midterm elections are looming closer than ever on the horizon for candidates, voters, and financial donors with the End Citizens United PAC already naming their list of potential targets from incumbent Republicans. End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller shocked many in the political world by stating her traditional PAC would be targeting the Senate seats of former Presidential candidate Ted Cruz and House Speaker Paul Ryan and appear to be making great inroads into the majority held by Cruz for his Texas seat with the latest End Citizens United poll placing Democrat Beto O’Rourke just eight points behind the incumbent Republican as the Midterms draw closer.
The continued rise of Beto O’Rourke in the Midterm polls has come despite End Citizens United discovering the platforms on which the candidate is running are largely unknown to many Texan voters who are more familiar with the political views of Cruz. The former Presidential candidate may still be leading in the polls but his Democrat rival hopes a 61 percent disapproval rating will aid his course to election victory after a series of missteps from Ted Cruz resulted in him seeing his approval rating tumble over the course of the last few months.
End Citizens United operates as a traditional PAC limiting the donations of its supporters to just $5,000 which allows it to remain free of the interference many major billionaire donors now bring to the groups they support. By restricting the level of support offered by donors the political influence is limited and the focus of End Citizens United can remain independent; major liberal donor, George Soros has contributed to the End Citizens united cause but his $5,000 donation does not allow him any more right to direct the future of the PAC than any other donor is afforded.
Beto O’Rourke is a thoroughly modern candidate who has become a favorite among young Democrat’s for his willingness to use social media to build the support he is seeing growth across the state. End Citizens United has seen its average donations grow over the course of its life from 2015 onwards to see an average donation of just $14; O’Rourke himself is only accepting grassroots donations but has managed to raise an impressive $2.4 million in the last quarter of 2014 while his fellow candidate managed just $1.9 million in the same timeframe.

As the company has done a tremendous job in keeping the quality of its services high at all times, it has been getting appreciation from all sides. Publishing a press release that showcased positive comments for the company has dramatically added to its market reputation.

Borae Development has been a source of hope among years of trouble in Middlesex County, NJ specifically as they’ve worked to improve the housing and commercial properties in this area over the past 30 years and more. The way they’ve done this is by building apartment condominiums, leased office space units and other areas accommodating for retailers in Middlesex County’s cities with appeals made to millennial consumers. The vacancies and housing prices in New Jersey in general are no overnight fix, but Boraie Development has stayed true to their work over the years and they plan to keep pushing ahead come what may.
Boraie Development was founded by Omar Boraie and is managed by him and his two sons Wasseem and Sam. Sam Boraie came to New Brunswick, NJ from Egypt over 40 years ago and at that time his career was primarily in the chemistry field doing lab work and working on his doctorate. But upon living in New Brunswick for some time, he saw a city that was falling apart as far as its properties were concerned, and he realized if he didn’t start doing something about them nobody else would. He decided to go into real estate investing on his own believing that with a new makeover to properties he purchased that businesses and residents would once again start moving back into the area. Most people were skeptical of Omar Boraie’s plans, but the news that Johnson & Johnson decided to remain in Middlesex County encouraged him to follow through with his plans.

According to Patch, Boraie Development took their work to Albany Street first where one of the most dangerous areas of downtown New Brunswick was turned into a brand new shopping area and civic activity hub. The construction of Albany Street Plaza’s tower one was finished in 1988, and in 2003 tower two and several other nearby buildings were also finished and New Brunswick started turning around. The city’s first big condominium came in 2006 when Boraie Development capitalized on a plan for a Manhattan-style high rise apartment on Spring Street. Most people thought it would take years to rent out, but every unit there ended up renting out in just months. Following construction of that building came The Aspire, a Rutgers housing project and now the Beach at South Inlet. It was only just a few years ago too that former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal also got involved with Boraie Development to plan new buildings for Newark neighborhoods.
