50can is organized for the purpose of improving the quality of public education in the 50 states of the United States of America. It does so through the creation and management of state-based educational reform programs in support of greater choices, transparency, accountability, and flexibility in public education. Elements of these programs include research on and development of effective educational reform policies, development, and use of information technology.
50CAN: The 50-State Campaign for Achievement Now is a nonprofit advocacy organization that recruits and supports local leaders who build citizen movements to ensure that every child has access to a great public school.
Our model is built around the conviction that all politics is local but locals shouldn’t have to start from scratch. We identify education reform leaders in their communities on the staff and board levels and then provide them with the tools needed to build an effective advocacy movement in their state, including national-caliber communications and research such as websites, lobbying strategies, policy expertise, and social media savvy. By empowering local leaders, we are helping create a true, lasting, effective state-based education reform movement tackling 50 sets of education policy challenges in 50 states to close the achievement gap between the “haves” and “have-nots” in America. We believe great schools change everything.
