Caring for Students
Charter leaders of color are valuable and necessary contributors to building a healthy, diverse and dynamic charter sector designed to serve the needs of marginalized students.
In 10 years, we will see a power shift in the education ecosystem that centers and values voices of color, new models of success rooted in student aspirations, and exponential growth of high quality charter schools led by leaders of color that enables limitless choice within marginalized communities.
