America Succeeds Annual Report

Last year was certainly an uphill climb, leading us to be even more proud of the momentum we have gained. Our reports on Advancing Equity in Education and Durable Skills continue to shed light on new opportunities for change, and we are more energized than ever to shout from the rooftops about the significance of learning competencies such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

In addition to these reports, we continue to expand our network! We welcomed two new states to our network, and recruited support from additional corporate partners like Walmart and Transwestern.

In 2022, we have already hit the ground running as we gather more support for these initiatives and continue our work towards more equitable educational opportunities and outcomes. With the support of the business community and our partners, we know that this year will be our brightest one yet and we cannot wait to share the journey with you all.
