Transform public education so every child receives a quality education.
Strengthen the capacity of communities to act as catalysts to transform and revitalize public education so every child receives a quality education.
Statement of Principles
The well-being of our communities is fundamentally dependent upon the degree to which all children receive a quality education. A quality education makes it possible for them, as citizens, to contribute responsibly to the social, economic and political strengths of their communities.
Supporting quality education in a rapidly changing democratic society requires:
~ Neighborhoods that claim responsibility for the performance of their schools.
~ A shared understanding that student achievement is the measure of a school’s success.
~ Community-wide access to research and information.
~ A reform support infrastructure that facilitates community-based accountability for education.
~ People working together, with integrity and firmness of purpose, to achieve the common goal.
