We’re driven by two beliefs: that equal opportunity defines what’s exceptional about America—and that public schools are the best idea America’s ever had for giving every child an equal chance. We’re also convinced that giving teachers everything they need to help every student thrive is the greatest act of service we can perform for our country. Every child deserves an excellent education and the opportunity to reach his or her full potential and we are working to make that happen.
The heart of learning is the connection between teachers and students. That is the centerpiece of school success: a teacher forming a bond with a student, triggering the student’s hunger to learn, and guiding it in the right way. All of our efforts work to ensure that all teachers have the tools and skills they need to form that bond with their students. This powerful bond is the foundation that prepares students for college, career, and life.
