We seek to promote equity-focused education policies and implement systemic change by:

Working alongside a diverse group of partners, including families, civil rights groups, organizations representing children with disabilities, faith and business leaders, education reform organizations, and others to create lasting change.

Delivering hard-hitting data analyses that shed light on the urgent challenges facing our public schools.

Presenting opportunities and solutions for state policymakers to advance equity and educational justice.

Driving public demand for policies and programs that raise academic achievement and close opportunity gaps.
