What We Stand For

 

Mission Statement

Educate Our State is a grassroots, parent-led organization educating and uniting Californians to advocate for systemic change that will provide all students with a high-quality public education.

Campaign Platform Overview

California is falling drastically behind in every educational measure for student success including: test scores, dropout rates, funding per pupil, and teacher-student ratios. California is failing its children; the time for change is now.

The current public education system in California is broken. We believe the fundamental building blocks outlined below are essential for an effective, high-quality K-12 education.

Superior Educators: Highly effective, inspirational teachers, principals and staff:

  • Attracting top graduates to teaching
  • Assessments of staff based on student outcomes, not just years of service
  • Provide teacher professional development and training

Logical, Sufficient and Stable Education Funding:

  • Logical and fair funding based on the students’ needs, not where they live
  • Locally-controlled funding with transparency and accountability
  • Enough money for schools based on calculations by education experts
  • Stable funding schools can count on, without yearly changes

Engaging and Stimulating Instruction and Curriculum:

  • Standards-based instruction that engages students
  • Teaching skills necessary for success in the 21st century workplace
  • Useful and timely student assessments

We continuously monitor ideas to improve education and make adjustment to our platform as needed.
