At our core, we are an organization focused on advancing education-based policies. Indeed, in 2011 we were founded to implement policies in support of an education system assessment commissioned by Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
Here, we offer stories about that policy work — what it takes, who gets involved, roadblocks to success, the highs, the lows, and everything in between.
Note that policy work is very process driven. It can take seemingly endless effort, but it’s worth it; policy changes in education have the potential for broad and lasting impact.
We look forward to sharing these stories for many reasons: giving kudos to our partners, recognizing the efforts of our elected officials, and perhaps even inspiring you to pursue policy advocacy.
