Stand for Children: An education advocacy organization
We believe ALL Oklahoma children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Education is the key that unlocks the door to future success and that is why we must demand excellent schools for ALL children. We champion policies, work, and strategies that are proven effective in closing the achievement gap to make certain every child receives the excellent education they need and deserve for future success.
Our mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college or career training. To make that happen, we:
- Educate and empower parents, teachers, and community members to demand excellent public schools.
- Advocate for effective local, state and national education policies and investments.
- Ensure the policies and funding we advocate for reach classrooms and help students.
- Elect courageous leaders who will stand up for our priorities.
