Welcome to a new weekly e-newsletter about education.

A new movement is building in America – aimed at making sure all children and youth have the opportunity to learn – a goal far more important than test taking or so-called school choice. We hope to serve that growing movement by sharing provocative information, analysis, and opportunities for action — and by linking educators in the trenches, students, parents, community leaders, education experts, and progressive activists who know education is crucial to the fight for democracy and economic progress.

Jeff Bryant is editor of Education Opportunity Network, a project of the Institute for America’s Future, in partnership with the Opportunity to Learn Campaign.
