We are a community of practitioners and advocates, personally committed to improving outcomes for all children. We are Allies for Educational Equity.
Our mission is to unite the political voices of education reformers so that zipcodes don't determine destinies.
Some of us work in state or local P12 classrooms, public policy or advocacy. Some of us are high quality charter supporters. Some see promise in district reform and are agnostic about school governance type. Some of us do not work in education reform but personally support it as engaged constituents.
We ALL believe that:
--All children have the ability to achieve at high levels and believe that lives can be changed through high quality instruction and schools;
--A great education shouldn't be a matter of zip code or luck;
--High-performing public charter schools are an important component of a healthy public education system;
--Supporting all children to reach their potential will ensure a bright future for our country.
Our pooled funds may not change the outcome of an election, but our existence does send a message that WE exist as a cause-focused corps that, as we grow, will become a political force. In the meantime, we are impatient - because we know kids can't afford to wait - so we won't wait to apply what we know in practice and in policy to inform our united political giving.
By showing up ourselves first, we will inspire the many, many other allies nationwide to join us in this effort.
