The only organization dedicated solely to helping state boards advance equity and excellence in public education.


When nearly every school shut its doors and went virtual at the start of the pandemic, parents and policymakers alike saw firsthand how hard teachers work to ensure that students learn, regardless of the conditions. “Pay teachers a million dollars!” we declared. Fast forward to 2022 and teachers are tired, stressed, sometimes under attack for what they teach, sometimes blamed for missteps in the system. What happened to the love?

Supporting and celebrating teachers starts with changing the narrative about teaching so prospective educators can see it as a worthy, rewarding profession.
