We have a passion for America’s public schools—a hunger to make each one of them excellent for every student. This passion is what drives our work. We believe that equal opportunity defines what is exceptional about America, and public schools are the best idea this country has had for giving every child an equal opportunity to succeed.
At the heart of learning is the bond between teacher and student. That bond helps trigger a student’s hunger to learn and allows teachers to guide each student’s individual path.
Strengthening the teacher-student bond is the focus of our College Ready strategy. With our partners, we are working to ensure all teachers have the goals, tools, and skills they need to form that bond and to help students thrive. Teachers are the experts on teaching, and they know the most about what works best in the classroom. We are working to make sure tools, curriculum, and supports are designed using their insights.
