We believe:

> 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.

The Coalition supports the Six Principles for Public Education in Washington, DC, a blueprint for building a public education system in our city.
