The Foundation’s investment in education is based upon the following five principles:

  • Autonomy and accountability – Schools must have the autonomy to do what is best for their students in exchange for rigorous accountability.
  • Choice – A meaningful array of quality alternatives is necessary to ensure that families can choose the education best suited for their child.
  • Talent – Effective teachers are the most critical factor in a child’s education.
  • Technology – Wisely deployed, technology has the potential to transform the quality and the menu of learning options available to each child.
  • Ideas Matter - Change requires an abundance of practical ideas, proof points and advocacy for conditions that support innovation and foster excellence.
