“If we don’t get the quality education that we need to succeed,
then we are being set up to fail,”

– Karen Calderon, a Hamilton High student

Defend Public Education

We believe public education has the ability to open doors to academic excellence, to address the economic, racial and social inequities in our society and to empower young people to think critically, be collaborative and change the world around them.

We believe that all students deserve access to a fully-funded, high-quality public education.

We believe that all publicly funded schools should have similar standards of transparency and accountability, equity and access for all students.

We believe parents, students and the public should help shape and transform their neighborhood schools to be truly community schools, locally grown and built by the neighborhood they serve.
