Children deserve supports and experiences that nurture their curiosity and capacity to learn from the very beginning of life through adulthood.
We aim to align the systems that prepare kids for college, career and civic life. We work to ensure children receive high-quality early care and education and enter school ready to learn. We advocate for a TK-12 system that provides students with a rigorous academic experience with highly-qualified and trained teachers, in environments that are safe, have the supports they need to succeed, and where students feel connected and the community is engaged. We also aspire to increase access to higher education and opportunities for young adults in the workforce.
