One Chance Illinois is based on a simple notion: every child has just one chance to get a great K-12 education. When it comes to a child’s education, there are no do-overs.
We seek to change the education policy conversation. Today, too many public, charter, and independent school sector leaders argue about which type of school is best able to serve children. Instead, parents must be empowered to choose the best school for their child.
Let’s be clear — we do not favor one school type over another. We instead support access to great schools and educational opportunities. Period.
Most importantly, we believe in realistic solutions– always putting children first but also considering the perspective of educators who need to implement them.
We need Illinoisans to join us and demand access to better schools and educational opportunities for all students across the state.
