We support outstanding educators to have a greater impact in the decisions that affect their schools by helping them to influence practice, policy, and the public conversation.
We believe that in order to craft the kind of education policies that reflect the best interests of schools, teachers and, most importantly, students, state policymakers should educate themselves on the implications of those decisions. And there is no better way to learn what's really going on than to visit a school in person.
