Education reformers are now an increasingly diverse mix, each and all deeply committed to educational equity. We span the country, political spectrum, role in education. We are even multi-generational.
Despite this, we are not a cohesive national political force. We tend technocratic and entrepreneurial, preferring to demonstrate, test and improve such that our outcomes speak for themselves. And, we have under-appreciated the need to engage not just in policy but also in politics.
We must recognize our shared beliefs in the power of knowledge and potential of each child, then apply what we know in practice and policy to change the politics of our work.
Together, we put our own skin the game. Then, with an eye toward excellence and equity, we allocate our pooled funds.
