Take Action for Students
Kindness is a powerful, common sense solution to some of schools’ and society’s biggest challenges. By teaching kids to practice kindness on a regular basis and manage their emotions, actions, and statements, they become better equipped to navigate our complex world.
Hear more about Teach Kindness from students who experienced the program.
Center for High School Success
The Center for High School Success (CHSS) is a cost-free resource providing educators, high schools, and school districts opportunities for professional development and strategic investment planning.
As a venture of Stand for Children, our staff is intimately familiar with the opportunities it creates in career and technical education (CTE), college readiness and dropout prevention.
Home Visit Project
Through the Home Visit Project, we train and empower teachers to conduct relationship-building home visits with their students’ families. The Home Visit Project has the potential to affect educators, parents, and students by strengthening connections, building trust, and allowing for more free communication with each other throughout the school year.
Protect Public Education
Students everywhere are falling behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly millions of students with special needs and the 12 million students who lack home internet access. The painful truth is this: Without federal funding, public schools will have to cut teachers and staff at the worst possible time.
Ask U.S. Senate leaders and your U.S. Senators to pass a next COVID-19 relief package with the $200 billion in Education Stabilization funding needed to prevent layoffs and the $4 billion through the E-Rate program needed to ensure all students can learn from home.
Quality Education is a Right
Students in Michigan and Rhode Island have filed class-action lawsuits against their states for failing to provide adequate public educations. The students argue they have a constitutional right to be educated, and that by failing to offer access to literacy, civics courses, and suitable learning conditions, the states violated this right.
Add your name if you believe every child has a right to receive a high-quality public education that prepares them for success in college or career.
