We are in danger of losing a generation of students.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated opportunity gaps between historically underserved students and their more privileged peers, with conservative estimates suggesting that students from low-income backgrounds lost an additional year of learning gains while schools were closed. More of the same won’t accelerate learning: we need bold, innovative education reforms that will help our students recover from the pandemic, and ensure a high quality, equitable education that allows every child to fulfill their potential.
That’s where Education Reform Now (ERN) comes in. ERN is a national research and advocacy organization that is centered around ensuring that all of America's public schools are providing all students—especially students from low-income backgrounds and students of color—with a high-quality public education. We seek forward progress—at the federal, state, and local level—developing and advocating for new, bold ideas and mutually reinforcing policies in elementary, secondary and post-secondary education. We then push policy makers to implement those policies with fidelity to lead to better outcomes for young people.
