I believe that education is the key to social advancement, personal enrichment, and an informed citizenry. I also believe that the public education system is still in need of significant reform. I'm proud to work for an organization that also believes passionately in the power of education and whose main goal is to help schools and communities become more equitable, informed and effective.
