A unique moment in history to create a national education movement
- Provide the groundswell of support for a powerful national movement of people who vote on education issues. This movement will complement and strengthen existing national, state and locally-based advocacy efforts, working with partners to set a national agenda for education.
- Reframe people as our country’s most important asset and their education as the most important investment in our country’s future; and
- Reimagine the federal investment in education by holding our elected officials accountable to the equitable rebalancing of education, economic and political resources.
Education Champions’ goal is to create a highly educated nation, one where all Americans have the educational resources, from birth through career, necessary to live meaningful lives, are prepared for the future, and able to drive a successful democracy and a prosperous economy.
We will work with the many smart, effective and passionate education advocacy organizations and the generous and thoughtful funders to build a movement to reach our goal. Recognizing the challenges we face, Education Champions is pulling together a strong coalition that will connect local groups, regional and state-based funders and national organizations. Our team will support their efforts to be more effective in their own areas, and provide the connective tissue between them to build this movement.
