The Issues

Driven by the promise of opportunity all students deserve: a quality education that prepares them for success.

The Issues

“Education is the civil rights of our generation. The undeniable truth is
that the everyday education experience for too many students of color
violates the principle of equity at the heart of the American promise.”

— US Secretary of Education,  Arne Duncan


A+ Schools champions educational equity and excellence. It is central to the promise of opportunity our country makes to our children. We believe all students deserve a quality education so they can graduate from high school, complete an advanced certificate or degree, and pursue a career. Our work focuses on removing barriers to educational equity — obstacles to student success.
