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.
