According to the 2009 High School Survey of Student Engagement, a full two-thirds of American high school students report being bored in class every day. Those students tuning out in school are turning on to video games. The video game Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 set a record for best selling product in the entertainment industry, outselling blockbuster movies on their opening weekends. That's what students are receptive to. Teachers don't have teams of concept artists, 3D modelers, writers, programmers, musicians, and multimillion dollar budgets for creating lessons.

Creating lessons that can compete with video games will take writers, teachers, graphic designers, programmers, and more. Your help to raise funds to pay for that expertise could provide a real benefit to countless students far and wide. Please donate to help make the Infinity Net Academy a reality. You can see a sample of what your contributions will create. The sample lesson video is only the beginning. The final product of a well funded endeavor could create an innovative force in education.

High School drop outs don't have a future without an education. In the U.S.A. high school drop outs commit about 75 percent of crimes.1 Increasing male high school graduation rates by one percentage point would save as much as $1.4 billion in criminal justice costs.2

So lets work together to put the 3 Es in teaching. That way earning a high school diploma won't feel like a burden to at risk students. Getting their high school diploma can become something they are eager to accomplish if it engages them on their terms. CBS News has reported that drop outs cost taxpayers more than $8 billion annually in public assistance programs like food stamps. So isn't it worth our while to do that?

There is more than one way to contribute. The Infinity Net Academy has affiliated with online programs to earn commissions that will help make a difference. Go to the help make a difference page to learn about the ways you can contribute that have something in it for you.
