We believe ALL children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Education is the key that unlocks the door to success. We are committed to ensuring that every child in Indiana has access to a high-quality education, no matter where they live.
Our mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college or career training. To make that happen, we:
- Educate and empower parents, teachers, and community members to demand excellent public schools.
- Advocate for effective local, state and national education policies and investments.
- Ensure the policies and funding we advocate for reach classrooms and help students.
- Elect courageous leaders who will stand up for our priorities.
Stand for Children has nearly two decades of experience working with parents, communities, and partner organizations toward the common goal of improving student outcomes. Stand has been in Indiana since 2011 advocating for effective education policies at the state and local level, helping to elect education champions and empowering parents by giving them the tools and skills to ensure their child graduates from high school college or career-ready.

Access to a quality public education is a basic human right – a right that is tragically not being afforded to many Hoosier children.
