The Foundation collaborates to build solutions in public education through the key areas of leadership, policy, governance, and engagement to inspire systems change and impact students’ lives. Because of the complexity of the educational system, our approach is multifaceted. We partner with school networks and districts demonstrating innovative practices, advocacy organizations working to ensure that policies and governance structures, including all levels of leadership, prioritize student needs, and community-based groups dedicated to strengthening parent and community voices. Promoting the importance of visionary leadership at all levels, we place particular emphasis on efforts that develop effective teacher and school leaders.
We support models that demonstrate the power of aligning and integrating strong policy, sound governance, excellent leadership, and meaningful engagement. This approach has resulted in greater opportunities for students, strong academic gains, and system-wide impact, as exemplified by our ongoing work with The Highline School District and the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools.
The League of Education Voters Foundation (LEV) is a Washington State-based organization working to improve public education from early learning through higher education. LEV shapes the debate, builds powerful coalitions, and grows the grassroots to achieve meaningful reform and ample resources for education.
Stand for Children is dedicated to ensuring that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education.
