Why Should I Care?
Every day, disadvantaged families across America face the stark reality that they lack access to schools that can better meet their children’s unique needs. Perhaps a different educational model could help them learn more effectively. Perhaps they would like to participate in a desired program or course of study. Or, in the worst cases, perhaps they need a way out of a school that is chronically underperforming, unsafe, or otherwise damaging to their academic or personal well-being.
In the absence of financial means to move to a better district or pay for private school tuition, these families have few places to turn. They languish on waiting lists and in lottery pools as educational opportunities just beyond their reach catapult other students into successful lives. They do not have time to wait.
Our nation has a responsibility to ensure that every student has access to the American Dream. Together, we can accomplish that goal.
