When public education is research-based, resourced, and community-powered, it is indispensable for advancing equity, ensuring a vibrant economy, and establishing a representative democracy. Working with a vast network of leaders in the field of education, we are co-creating resources that enable building on what works, changing what doesn’t, and constantly improving to achieve an equitable, high-quality, public education system.

Challenges like racial injustice, inequity, and remodeling the education system can be solved by working together in new ways. To support this, we are gathering resources from partners and leaders in the field that illustrate the importance of public education, provide helpful research on what’s working and the challenges ahead, and present affirmative approaches to policy and practice.
If you are aware of any resources that you think belong here, let us know.
