While young people in the U.S. are completing high school and college at record levels, we've fallen from first in the world to 22nd and 13th on these measures. Our gains have not kept pace with leading countries or the higher skill bar needed for success in today's world. Success in the 21st century requires higher levels of education, deeper learning, and the ability to apply skills to solve real world problems.
We back the initiatives of outstanding leaders with game-changing ideas to improve how we prepare young people for success. We catalyze impact in three areas.
Our initiatives help America's students and educators accelerate excellence and deepen their learning by solving challenging, real-world problems.
We help initiatives like Results for America, a bipartisan coalition that has already helped shift over $2B in funding to an evidence based approach.
We back initiatives expanding opportunity and improving outcomes in higher education for low and moderate income students.
We catalyze large scale impact by identifying and supporting outstanding leaders with game-changing ideas, and matching them with results-orientated funding, and strategic and operational support.
