Meet Education Forward DC!

Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Education Forward DC! Education Forward DC is a new nonprofit organization working to advance quality and equity in our city’s public schools.

We provide funding and strategic support to high-­impact leaders aligned with the following strategies to help us reach this ambitious goal.

A Great School for Every Student in DC: We are working towards a city where every student goes to an excellent school, every day.

Schools Led By Excellent Principals and Teachers: Students thrive with great school leaders who can recruit and develop talented teachers.

A School System Designed For DC Families: Every family in DC should have access to public school options that meet their needs.
