How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In 2006, Education Week named us the most influential organization of the decade. And in 2011, we were named as one of the two most effective education advocacy organizations in Washington.
We started our string of policy wins in 1994, when we convinced Congress to overhaul the Title 1 program and stopped federal funding from being taken away from high poverty schools that raised achievement. In 1998, we inserted the first accountability requirements for teacher preparation in the Higher Education Act. In 2002, we secured changes in federal education law requiring schools to stop hiding the underperformance of some groups of children. In 2011, we ran a successful campaign to save Pell grants and helped Congress and the Administration shape next generation accountability and teacher policies.
 
None of these accomplishments would be possible without our unique combination of deep work in schools and colleges, unflinching data analysis, and willingness to say what needs to be said, no matter who it aggravates. And none would be possible, either, without support from foundations, corporations, and individuals who know that our very future as a country depends on a better and more equitable education system, pre-K through college.
