District's Positive Impact

One district has taken its new budget freedom and made the most of it for students: Rockford Public Schools.

Our Mission

Stand for Children is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability.
