We believe that everyone has the right to quality education. Public education has been one of the greatest inventions to give equal opportunities in their formative years. However, the current model of education has not allowed children to reach their full potential. Inequality remains the defining issue of the 21st century, despite huge advances in technology and economic growth. The opportunity to fully participate in the future remains out of the grasp of many.

Equal Opportunity in education means that the system should not hold back students or leave them behind. The education system needs to accommodate student needs to give them the best chance to succeed. A high quality education is one that captures the imagination, engages the learner, and builds on skills over rote memorization. This kind of education cannot be automated or mass produced; it must be personalized by a professional who understands the readiness, interests, and preferences of each learner.
