I would like to welcome you to a unique collaborative of universities, school districts, and youth service programs. Fourteen years ago there was no E. Desmond Lee Regional Institute of Tutorial Education. Today Des Lee’s vision has materialized. RITE has effective training programs for teachers, tutors, community leaders, and others interested in improving the motivation and social and academic abilities of under-served children.
In short, we have documented success in addressing the “achievement gap” with our research-based programs. I could not have a better group of people to work with or a more worthwhile vision of the future, a future we are building together.
One of the newer programs that RITE supports is called Conscious Choice. Please see our new brochure for a full description of the program.
