About this grant

This grant will enable the PICO National Network, in partnership with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), to coordinate the Organizing for Educational Excellence Training Institute. The institute is designed for staff and leaders of organizations involved in local community-driven school reform. The goals of the annual institute include strengthening the capacity of education organizing groups to improve student outcomes in the school systems in which they work; and building working relationships between the field of education organizing and school reform practitioners and scholars.
