Understand our schools’ challenges. Then take action.
School funding and socioeconomic barriers are big, multi-layered topics. We’re here to break them down, show you what’s occurring, and then give you a meaningful way to make a difference.
Creating Equity. Building Opportunity.
Our goal is simple: Give you objective, easy-to-understand information that helps you stay in tune with major issues Madison public schools face, while providing a direct, meaningful way to get involved in a way that drives change TODAY. As an independent, nonprofit organization, we work on behalf of students and teachers, and we’re never beholden to bureaucracy or politics.
Inadequate school funding is failing our future.
Only 10% of funding for Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) comes from the state. That means, the burden falls on taxpayers. The model is broken and it’s impacting our students – and future workers – as programs are reduced and opportunities cut.
Kids can’t control the barriers they face. We can.
Outside of the classroom, too many MMSD students face food insecurity, homelessness, transportation challenges and more. We’re working to reduce the impact of these challenges through an array of programs that have real, immediate impact in our schools. Read on to see how you can get involved to support the future of our city.
