Reflecting on 5 Years of Education Forward DC
In July 2021, Education Forward DC celebrated our five year anniversary. In that relatively short amount of time, our investment of over $40 million in more than 80 unique grantees to build greater equity for DC students has supported meaningful gains for DC’s public schools and the environment that enables their success through expanded resources, improved academic achievement, and more quality school options. And prior to the pandemic, DC was on track to double the number of underserved students who are college and career ready.
These gains reflect better experiences and better outcomes for students, and we’re proud that the range of work we have supported since 2016 has helped advance that change.
