What We Stand For
For 20 years, we have advocated for better and equal education standards for all children by utilizing a strong three-pillared approach: Parents, Politics, and Policy. The effectiveness of this approach, coupled with organizing and empowering parents and community, has led to countless policy, legislation, election and budget wins across our eleven states.
Our states have also worked independently to identify local challenges facing children, to figure out what’s working across the nation, and to advocate for effective solutions that continue to benefit millions of children today. To ensure that we continue the fight and maximize our collective impact, we developed a set of standards for how to accomplish our mission of effectively closing the achievement gap.
