Education Forward DC works to advance quality and equity in DC public schools. Our goal over the next five years is that schools emerge from the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide a reimagined experience for students that meets their full academic, social, and emotional needs. Specifically, we aim to double the proportion of schools providing high-quality, high-equity experiences.

We provide grants across the city, offer advisory support to our grantees, and coordinate work across sectors, schools, and organizations in DC to ensure a great public school for every DC student.


Education Forward DC accelerates the work of visionary education leaders to foster a city of high-quality, equitable public schools for every DC student.
