Illinois families and children should have educational opportunities and experiences they find meaningful. Often, those opportunities can be shaped with the expertise of those directly affected: students, parents, teachers and community partners. The result can lead to stronger, more equitable outcomes that close the achievement gap between student groups.
Our Vision: Educational champions, including parents, teachers, and students, are supported to make learning opportunities, experiences, and outcomes stronger and more equitable.
