It is the mission of the Center for Education Reform to accelerate the growth of the education reform movement in ways that make available to families new and meaningful choices, give parents fundamental power over their children’s education, and allow teachers and schools to innovate in ways that transform student learning.

The Center for Education Reform embraces three core pillars to achieve this mission:
– Generate leading ideas and information to drive innovative strategic policy changes that result in more and increased diversity in educational choice.
– Grow activism in communities, from the ground up, to arm current and new generations of committed grassroots activists to reclaim quality and choice in education as a fundamental right.
– Ensure issue accuracy by challenging convention and stimulating all forms of media coverage and discussion to promote accountability in the public interest

Each of these pillars plays a fundamental role in achieving The Center for Education Reform’s main objective: empowering parents with more control over the education of their own families.
