All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talent.

Education Reform Now
A first-rate public education system is the cornerstone of a prosperous, free and just society. Yet millions of American children (particularly low-income and children of color) are trapped in persistently failing schools that are part of a deeply dysfunctional system. Education Reform Now (ERN), headquartered in Washington DC, operates in 14 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington State, and Wisconsin.
