At the core of our effort to protect our public schools are public school educators. Today’s teachers have to wear multiple hats while fighting the privatization of their schools. We work to help teachers fight without fear, and support their efforts to educate our next great generation of innovators.
Here's one thing that we know for sure, tomorrow's challenges will be harder than today's. Therefore we absolutely have to invest in an education infrastructure that will teach children how to innovate, imagine, question, and think critically. Notice nowhere in there did I mention memorize or take a test. Because tomorrow's challenges won't be multiple choice - tomorrow's challenges will require thought leadership. Public education is critical to ensuring the majority of tomorrow's generation is composed of thought leaders.

The Franklin Foundation for Innovation
The Franklin Foundation is focusing on issues that not only affect children, their parents, and their communities but also the educators fighting through these matters to help children reach their potential. Educators are the cornerstone of our public schools and need support to ensure tomorrow’s innovation generation. Our efforts are aimed at improving teacher support to improve educational outcomes, inform education policy, and change the narrative around public education as a whole.
Our collaboration with America’s Public School Educators is critical to achieving our mission in a way that will have a lasting impact. Learn more about the programs, initiatives, and pathways we’re creating to protect our public education infrastructure.
