Partnership for the Future of Learning

America’s educational promise needs an update.

Education in the United States has been a story of promises broken and unevenly fulfilled. We need to renew the promise of public education for all – a promise that fosters a public education system where every kid, in every community can learn in a high-quality and meaningful environment. The time is now for us to come together and make a pragmatic public investment in the future of learning.
