96%

of the students attending failing schools statewide are Black or Latino

72

of the 76 failing schools statewide have a poverty rate of at least 90%

250,000

kids live in poverty in Alabama.

In Alabama, our students' race and social class far too often determine the quality of their school. We must act urgently to rectify this injustice—their futures depend upon it.  

DEVELOPING SCHOOLS

We recruit high-quality charter school operators and develop homegrown leaders to build great schools throughout Alabama.  

How We Work

EXCHANGING IDEAS

We ensure that parents and community members have access to clear information about school quality, and we partner on key decisions from the outset.

ADVANCING POLICY

We hear the needs of community members and school leaders, and we zealously advocate for a policy environment that aligns to their best interests.
