What does it take to prepare all children to come to school ready to learn? To answer this question, we’ve been thinking about how radically children’s lives differ outside of school, and what it would take to provide individualized support and learning so they can all succeed.
We’re envisioning an education system — not a new system, but one that’s built on our current system — of supports and opportunities that meets all children where they are in early childhood, and gives them what they need inside and outside of school so they can be successful in every stage of education and into adulthood. In our vision for a redesigned education system, we know that we can’t expect schools alone to shoulder this responsibility. Instead, we have to align all of our public services so that they work together, in partnership, to support families and promote the success of every child.
