We are grateful for generous financial support that we have received including funding from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Charles Butt, the Heckscher Foundation For Children, the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the George Kaiser Family Foundation, the Kern Family Foundation, the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation and others.


We need to give every student, in every school, an opportunity to get a great education and make the most of their talents. We need to do this for kids from affluent, middle-class and poor families, for our African American, Latino, Asian, white, English-language learners, and for kids with special needs. We don’t have a kid to lose, both for our pursuit of fair access to the American dream, but also for our pursuit of a strong economy and strong democracy.
