Step 1: Consultation to escape hegemony:
This website is intentionally vague regarding the Ditch School program. To learn more, reach out to schedule a fee-based one-hour consultation. The information you will learn is invaluable whether or not you end up working with Ditch. A money back guarantee is offered, though, nobody has ever taken advantage of that.
Hegemony is the idea that those in power maintain their authority by shaping the dominant culture, values, and narratives in society. This helps them maintain control without relying on force. We believe the K-12 education system in our county is hegemonic and our goal at Ditch is to transcend that reality.
Daring to Innovate and Transcend Cultural Hegemony
Step 2: A note from Jessica
A teacher for over two decades, I have spent the last 15 years consulting and advocating for students in public and private schools, homeschoolers, and child actors and athletes. My professional consulting services have led to exceptional college admissions, improved grade point averages, drop-outs earning diplomas, and students' voices being heard. I advise, edit, tutor, and evaluate and arm my students with the tools to succeed in any type of schooling situation. My clients are mostly in San Francisco and Los Angeles, however, I also work with students in Florida, New York, Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, South America, and Europe. I’ll work with your family to create a customized plan of action for your student, whether it relate to college applications, test preparation, home- or-unschooling, cleaning up transcripts, advanced math/writing tutoring, or early college..
