Our

dream is for schools to be as alive with learning for the adults as our best classrooms are for students - every day! Rather than feel demoralized and defeated by No Child Left Behind, we want school staff to feel empowered and excited about the possibilities for using a variety of data to better serve students and close achievement gaps. We want educators to take full responsibility for the learning of every student in their building. And we want them to produce better and better results for students.
