Improving Family Engagement

We define family engagement as the collaboration between families and educators that accelerates student learning. A strong body of research shows that students do better in school and in life when parents and schools are equal partners in a child’s education.

Inspiring Effective Philanthropy

We are paving the way for innovation in strategic philanthropy. We partner with committed people in government, business, foundations, and nonprofits to increase effective giving to education and results-driven philanthropy.

Promoting Great Teaching

We listen to and learn from committed teachers with a focus on improving reading by third grade, and partner with promising schools to understand how they support teaching reading. We identify great teachers, replicate their work, and celebrate great teaching success.
