Achievement and Opportunity

Embracing education as the engine of opportunity and achievement
Embracing education as the engine of achievement and opportunity

We believe in the power of individuals and communities to shape their futures. And we recognize there’s no one right answer to the education challenges communities face.

That’s why we plan to do more to foster the ingenuity that lives within communities. We support community-demanded, community-designed and community-driven educational change across the country.

Those efforts will likely look very different in different places. Some ideas may challenge existing notions of what school looks like and where and how learning happens.

But they will all share a core conviction that every child belongs. Every child matters. And every child should see a future filled with possibility. We embrace education as the engine of opportunity and a child’s best chance at achieving the American Dream.
