The Coalition for DC Public Schools & Communities
is committed to ensuring our families have access to
excellent educational opportunities in all corners of our city.
> Our families should not have to win a lottery or travel long distances to secure an excellent education for their children.
> All of our neighborhoods should enjoy the power of strong neighborhood schools to build communities committed to learning and our children.
> All of our children should be provided with the kind of education that can open doors to 21st century opportunities.
> Our city's resources should be used wisely to support our public education system.

Today, we are proud to announce the launch of C4DC, the Coalition for DC Public Schools and Communities.
Our members have been working together, often ad hoc, over the past few years on many important education reform efforts. The basis of our work is Six Principals for Public Education in Washington, DC, a set of beliefs that members of the coalition developed last year to guide the next steps in ensuring the best possible public education system in DC.
