Stand for Children’s mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education.
We work to elect legislators who are deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for children and who put students at the forefront of education policies. We do this through our Illinois Political Action Committee (PAC), which is independent and non-partisan.
In 2014, our candidates ran strong campaigns, and we're enormously proud of their success. One candidate ran a great race and came up a bit short, while another is still too close to call. That means as of Election Night at least 21 of 23 Stand-endorsed candidates won their races.
We support candidates who believe in these tenets to building better public schools:
- Every child deserves an education system with funding equity and fairness
- Every child deserves a 21st century education
- Every child deserves an excellent teacher
- Every child deserves high-quality public school options
