About the Initiative
Our mission is to support students’ economic mobility by establishing a set of skills and competencies in PK–12 education—across academic achievement, “noncognitive” factors, health and well-being, social capital, and career preparation—that educators and policymakers can use to shape practices, programs, interventions, and broader systems change.
