Every student in America deserves a chance for a great life. But too many students and families—especially those who live in large cities, who are Black or Latino, or who struggle with poverty—need better public schools and school systems. In our home city of Los Angeles, the second largest school district in the country, the need is particularly significant.
Our grantees and the leaders we support are relentless in their pursuit of providing an excellent education for every child. With teachers, school leaders, parents and community members, we are committed to improving our public schools and making sure every family has access to a great school. Our students deserve no less.
