Support our work

To achieve our vision—high quality education for every student in every neighborhood—we focus on changing the dynamic around education in Chicago and more fully engage those closest to these challenges. Our overarching objective—to ensure that Chicago’s education system operates effectively and efficiently for families—guides all that we do. Our current strategies are designed to ensure that families continue to have the options they want, that schools are high-quality, and that policies reflect a “kids-first” mindset.
