If there were ever an uncertain year ahead, 2021 is it. Planning an ambitious, strategic legislative agenda for next year seems virtually impossible right now. America Succeeds latest report, “Bouncing Back: Student-Centered Policy Priorities for 2021” offers straightforward and foundational policy priorities for the coming year.
Education Policy & Advocacy
At America Succeeds, we believe that education is the single most important influence on a child’s success, and that every child deserves and is owed the opportunity to obtain an excellent education, regardless of race, family income, or zip code. We focus on transformative, student-centered policy change that leads to systemic improvement in education outcomes, especially prioritizing education-to-workforce pathways, system building and accountability, human capital, transparent and equitable funding, and high-quality options.
This space is dedicated to reporting on recent and relevant topics in education, including discussions of current and future education policies, and identifying the resources available for effective education advocacy. As part of our work, America Succeeds has also produced and compiled a collection of resources with our affiliates and partners, in order to support good education practices.
