As we work toward our mission of a high-quality education for all kids, the following four beliefs guide our work:


We believe that education is the most important issue facing our country and we have the opportunity in our generation to help usher in an era of high-quality education for all.


We believe that nonpartisan, research-backed advocacy for policy change is the most critical lever for achieving this goal.


We believe that the most important advocacy takes place locally, where the decisions are made and change is possible.


We believe that the most successful local education advocacy efforts follow a bottom-up approach by finding, connecting and supporting a diverse group of entrepreneurial leaders.
