We believe that every child should receive an adequate and equitable allocation of resources to meet his or her unique needs. Unfortunately in too many districts across the country, a student’s zip-code dictates the quality of education they receive. Addressing inadequacies and inequities in funding is a critical component of efforts to reform and improve education. They all should be pursued jointly. Therefore, we support student-centric policies to grow public education funding overall, level it up for those currently disadvantaged, extend learning time, and increase access to effective teachers and quality facilities so that all students, no matter their race, socioeconomic status, or zip-code receive a high-quality education be it in a traditional district-run public school or public charter school.
