From the blog

At the core of our work at LEE is the fundamental belief that educational inequity is a solvable problem. That not only does every child deserve an outstanding education, but that we as a society have the power to actually make it happen.

Some say it’s unlikely. We say: we just need the right people leading the charge.

That’s why we’re making a bet on leadership. In fact, we’re making a bet on you.
