for Taxpayers... - Provide a stable and equitable source of school funding - Ensure that the funding burden is distributed fairly - Protect and expand transparency and accountability
for Business Leaders... - Encourage the business community to collaborate with area schools - Produce a workforce of innovators and critical thinkers, instead of good "bubblers"
for Elected Officials... - Connect education stakeholders with their elected officials - Inform elected officials of the positive or negative effects of their policy initiatives - Bridge the divide between rhetoric and reality - Realize that public education faces tough challenges that cannot be overcome with quick or fad fixes
