A 501(c)(3) public non-profit foundation focused on ensuring all American children have equal access to a high-quality public school education devoid of for-profit reformation schemes. We are dedicated to changing the narrative on American public education by supporting community organizations that promote education, bringing an end to standardized testing, and promoting the importance of community-based public schooling.
Our core belief: it is our responsibility as a nation to ensure that knowledge, the true American currency, is passed down to the next generation to ensure their ability to lead our country into a future where we can continue to compete and succeed globally. Tomorrow’s next great innovator may come from the inner city or a farm in the heartland. Both deserve equal access to a public school education that provides them every opportunity to learn, play, imagine, and grow. Their potential should not be limited by their zip code, tax bracket, or selection in a charter school lottery.
We are a solutions-based organization working to solve key issues in our education infrastructure by providing support to community-based organizations and managing a number of key programs and initiatives aimed at protecting innovation, our public schools, and the children who need them.
We affirm that our schools are not getting the support they need to flourish. We know our teachers are not getting the support they need to inspire our children to innovate. We are seeing the negative effects of a toxic testing culture, and are determined to disrupt what has the for-profit infrastructure around education often labeled as “education reform.” This damage to our public educational system is having an impact on the availability of access to the education all children deserve. We are confident that this loss of innovation will have a detrimental effect on our long-term national security.

Together, we can ensure every child has access to a quality public school education in an environment focused on helping children achieve and innovate, not leveraging tax dollars for for-profit interests. Together we can engage communities, educate citizens and lawmakers, and end the long-running scam that is corporatized education reform.
