OUR
WORK

Your gift empowers parents to use their voices to demand access to a high-quality public education for all.

our EDUCATION PRIORITIES

EQUITABLE FUNDING FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The data is clear – Indiana is severely shortchanging schools when it comes to supporting our traditionally underserved students. That’s why we’ll push for dramatic increases in funding ELL services and special education, as well as boosting dollars for low-income students.

ADDRESSING OPPORTUNITY GAPS THROUGH LITERACY

 Kids can’t succeed if they can’t read. And tragically our state is in crisis when it comes to literacy. We’ll be pushing for an agenda that supports teachers and schools in getting the best possible training and curriculum designed to support all children in becoming skilled readers.

opportunity FOR LOW-INCOME STUDENTS

Indiana’s college completion rate has dropped dramatically, but we know one program that is working for young people pursuing higher education: the 21st Century Scholarship designed specifically for under-resourced students. That’s why we’ll advocate for all students eligible for the scholarship to be enrolled automatically. Currently, only 50% of students who are eligible are actually applying for the scholarship.

MAKING IPS MORE
JUST & EQUITABLE

Indianapolis parents have a vision for using quality education to tear down walls built by racism in our community. Those parents are leading the charge to create strong, collaborative partnership between families, teachers and education leaders to achieve a truly just and equitable IPS.
