Partners for Each and Every Child is a project of the Opportunity Institute and grew out of the work of the congressionally chartered Equity and Excellence Commission. It is a collaborative, nonpartisan network of education researchers, advocacy organizations, and policy experts. The partnership seeks to expand its effort to support the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act in several states to advance a broad equity agenda, including deeper learning outcomes that result in student acquisition of the knowledge, higher-order thinking skills, and academic mindsets necessary for economic and civic success.
