ExcelinEd works with policymakers to advance proven reforms by sharing best practices and providing technical assistance as needed. We advocate for policies that benefit students, not the interests of for-profit or nonprofit entities. We believe families are best served when they can choose the best schools for their children, and that digital technology will revolutionize K-12 education — something already taking place at the university level.
Since our reform agenda is centered on students, a fundamental disagreement exists between our organization and groups that support adult-centric, public school monopolies that maximize union memberships. Still, it's disappointing when these groups engage in unfounded character attacks rather than focusing on the merits of reform policy.
