See how students, educators, parents, policymakers, and communities are tackling some of our nation’s biggest challenges in the world of education.
A zip code should not determine a future. All students—regardless of their income, race, language status or disability – deserve to be at the center of every education decision made in schools, in communities, in states and in Washington, DC.
Excellent education emerges when teachers, parents, communities, and—perhaps most importantly—students work together to inform policy and practice. Bringing these voices to the table builds trust and encourages collaboration.
We believe that every student ought to be taught by excellent teachers. Likewise, teachers should be celebrated, competitively compensated, and treated with the same reverence we afford to doctors and business leaders.
Innovative school models will define the classroom of the future. We need to reimagine how we inspire young people to understand history's challenges, solve today's real-world problems, and take advantage of tomorrow's opportunities.
All students deserve to be educated in schools that meet and reward their aspirations. Schools ought to be held accountable for how well students are learning. Together, we can empower every student to meet high and consistent academic standards.
Beyond equipping schools with computers and internet access, integrating technology-based tools into curriculum is critical. Technology enables students to learn at their own pace, helps teachers and administrators collaborate, and lets families support student growth.
