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.
We recruit high-quality charter school operators and develop homegrown leaders to build great schools throughout Alabama.
How We Work
We ensure that parents and community members have access to clear information about school quality, and we partner on key decisions from the outset.
We hear the needs of community members and school leaders, and we zealously advocate for a policy environment that aligns to their best interests.
