We develop leaders and local coalitions that advocate for solutions within three areas.
Every student has access to highly effective teaching and our highest need students have equitable access to our most highly effective teaching.
Every student in every neighborhood has access to public schools that prepare them to fully participate and succeed in life and work in the twenty-first century.
Systems and structures empower the entire education community to act in the best interests of children, disrupt and address inequities based on race, language, and class, and ensure efficient, effective supports for schools and families.
Guided by our Local Leadership Councils in Oakland and West Contra Costa, we work within our policy framework below to identify, prioritize, and influence the highest leverage changes in local public education systems — all in the best interest of each community’s students.
