    School Choice

    Families need the financial freedom to attend schools that meet their needs. The Foundation supports policies that empower families to choose a public, charter, private, virtual or home school.

One question has preoccupied the school choice community for many years. What is the best way – if any – to measure student learning in choice programs?

Don’t let a piece of paper place children in an educational box based on their diagnosis. As more families access PLSAs, I know more will see that all children can succeed if we are able to think outside the box and create an education that truly fits the needs of each unique child.

The benefits of this new school are significant, but so is the financial burden for the school’s tuition. Unfortunately the cost of a custom-made education is not an option for every parent, yet the prospect of a 23 percent chance at graduation is not an option either.

A Holiday Dose of Optimism

Mickey Mantle was making his last trip to Detroit as a professional baseball player. When he came up for his last at-bat, Tigers pitcher Denny McClain told Mantle that he’d throw him a fastball down the middle, something Mantle could hit out of the park. Mantle did not swing at the first pitch. McClain gave […]

  • Standards and Accountability

    Standards and Accountability

    Students and schools must be held to high academic standards, with their progress measured and results reported in simple, transparent formats. The Foundation supports standardized measurement of student learning, including annual comprehensive end-of-course assessments in elementary, middle and high school, as well as grading schools on an A-F scale – just like students.

Technology + Innovation = Gains in Math

Recently, New Classrooms released an independent study of the first two years of implementation of its new middle school math program called Teach to One, which is a blended and personalized learning program that allows students to learn at their own academic level in an instructional format that is most likely to help them succeed.

  • Digital Learning

    Digital Learning

    Technology can revolutionize education and help ensure no student is bored or left behind. The Foundation supports the use of technology to offer students access to a high-quality, customized education and empower teachers to help their students succeed.

School Choice: A Fight for Students

You see, it’s not a battle over public education versus other educational options. And it most certainly shouldn’t be a fight over where the funding “should” go. It’s a fight for students – for the futures that “could-be.” It’s about allowing all children access to a quality education that’s best suited to their needs and conducive to their educational success.
