Our Schools Need Your Help
All students deserve a great education. To make this happen, we need strong advocates. We need to make our voices heard. We need you.
We’re up against a national crisis.
In this country, only 1 in 10 low-income students graduates from college. This is unacceptable. We need great K-12 schools to help change this for the future.
Our schools face unfair funding & unfair facilities.
Public charter school students receive substantially less state and local funding than their peers in district schools.In some of the cities where we operate, they also don’t have access to public school buildings. This threatens our schools’ sustainability every year.
There are too few seats for students who need them.
For every seat in an Achievement First school, there are many more students on the waitlist. We need more great school options in our communities to meet family demand.
