Every child deserves and is owed the opportunity to obtain an excellent education, regardless of race, family income, or zip code.
We believe education is the single most important influence on a child’s success. Business leaders also understand education is the most important economic development initiative our communities can undertake. Our long-term vitality is dependent on a pipeline of graduates who are college and workforce-ready. Unfortunately, there are too many communities where the demand for skills is outpacing the talent our schools are generating.
