Overview
The National Public Education Support Fund convenes the Education Funder Strategy Group, which is a learning community of 30 foundations focused on education policy and facilitating working groups interested in such topics as racial equity and social and emotional learning. This grant will support several activities, including the Partnership for the Future of Learning, which is a collaboration of funders and thought leaders that promotes a forward-looking narrative for public education, related policy framework, and a field engagement strategy nationally and in key locations. Better alignment among funders, policymakers, and thought leaders will help advance deeper learning outcomes as the measure of educational equity and excellence.
