Updating American Public Education
Shared vision and values to jumpstart a future-facing, inclusive discussion.
We offer a vision of American education responsive to these values, trends, and pillars. It is an ambitious, but practical, vision of how to build policy and practice over the coming decades. It is a vision grounded in longstanding and widely shared values: we want and need our schools exist to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for young people to craft meaningful lives, build a strong economy, steward a vibrant democracy, and foster equity and justice.
