K-12 Education Reform

Bill Daniels’ Motivation

Bill felt strongly that every student deserves a quality education that provides relevant real-world experiences. He believed free enterprise principles — like competition and choice — have the power to achieve systemic reform and foster excellent schools.

Desired Result

Every family has access to high-quality education options that give their children an opportunity to succeed through increased education choice, high-quality teachers and leadership, and informed/engaged parents.

Our Strategy

  • Education Marketplace
    Expanded competition and school choice are realized through high-performing charter schools and private schools, tuition assistance/portable voucher programs, and other innovative market-driven education initiatives.

  • Parental Engagement
    Parents become better educated in the areas of school quality and choice, and understand how to be effective advocates for their children.

  • Teacher/Leadership Quality
    Teachers and school leaders receive effective training and support to maximize student achievement.
