Our Core Beliefs

Together, we believe in:

Closing Achievement and Opportunity Gaps in P–12 and Beyond

Every child deserves access to all levels of education and the tools to succeed at any age.

Funding and Resource Equity

Every student attends a school that receives the funding it needs based on the needs of the community it serves.

Increased Educator Diversity

Every child is taught by skilled, well-supported teachers who reflect the state’s racial and linguistic diversity.

Support For Students’ Social-Emotional and Academic Development

Every child learns in a safe and inclusive environment that fosters positive relationships between staff and students.

Additional Protection and Opportunities During a Crisis

Every student has access to instructional continuity and mental, physical and nutritional support during a state crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you or your organization shares these beliefs with us, we invite you to join the Alliance.
