Our vision: An equitable society in which all Black and Latinx students from low-income backgrounds have access to a high-quality, culturally relevant K-12 education that empowers them to achieve social and economic liberation.
In the United States, a strong education is the gateway to a successful career, financial security and the ability to support a family. Yet far too often, a high-quality education isn’t accessible to Black and Latinx students from low-income communities.
Every student—inclusive of race, zip code and socioeconomic status—deserves an education that affirms their identity, provides a sense of agency in life and prepares them to succeed on their chosen path.
Our work in Education is part of our broader efforts to advance racial and economic equity in the United States. We aspire to help shape a public education system that values all students equally and ensures they have the same opportunities to graduate high school ready for college and careers.
We pursue this vision by investing in one of our most important assets: our teachers.
Teachers are at the heart of the movement to ensure that all students receive a high-quality education. Expanding access to a high-quality education demands a diverse and skilled educator workforce equipped with high-quality training and instructional materials. It demands supportive and engaging classroom and school environments. It demands equitable policies that advocate for what students and teachers need.
Together with our partners, we strive to help every student access an empowering standards-aligned, culturally relevant education that serves as a building block to a life of freedom and dignity.
