To make schools better for every student, education stakeholders – from students to policymakers – must work and learn together.

In everything that we do, A+ connects education stakeholders – teachers, administrators, community leaders, families and students – with peers, mentors, ideas and resources. It is through these connections that strengthening and innovating take place.

We believe that a well-informed public is the terra firma on which great public schools are built. Together with Chevron, we bring the best ideas in education to a series of free, public lectures through our annual speaker series. We sponsor EduDrinks Houston as a way for Houston-area education professionals to find partners and inspiration through casual connection. And we work to put actionable information in the hands of policymakers by developing policy recommendations synthesized from the best available research as well as our experience in classrooms.
