California is different from many other states in that state education policy gives significant authority to local leaders and decision-makers (through the Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control and Accountability Plans). Many assume the federal, or even state, government controls their school environment. And while these bodies are certainly important, local decision-makers in California wield enormous power.
It is this uncommon approach that informed GO’s inception and allows our local teams to make an outsized difference for students.
Through GO’s local work with families, educators, and community allies, we are able to pressure and support local district and elected leaders to make equity-focused, data-driven decisions, examine and reflect on key drivers of student progress, and implement solutions to continuously improve in service of student learning and growth.

Public education is at its best when schools prize knowledge, creativity, and habits of mind and heart to solve new problems in new ways. At GO, we are working to ensure our education system is supporting students, families, and educators to reach their full potential.
