Our children are our nation’s most valuable resource. And we can’t afford to let a single one slip through the cracks.

All students are capable of learning and succeeding—yet many aren’t given the chance. Too often, education systems expect less of students based on their race, ethnicity or household income. Yet all students can succeed when we stop excusing failure and start providing students with equitable opportunities to learn and excel.

The following commonsense solutions can help bold leaders defy the status quo and transform education.

  • Empower parents and families with public and private school choice.
  • Embrace higher standards and accountability.
  • Prioritize early literacy with quality teacher training and intervention programs.
  • Improve technical infrastructure and provide necessary resources to close the digital divide.
  • Create high-quality education to workforce pathways for students that align with job market demand.
