Leveraging Support for Local Public Education

The #HerefortheKids campaign brings together families, educators, and community members to shine a light on local public schools and tell the stories of the amazingly positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide. 

It’s a critical for all of us to work together to support public education and our students’ success. The Learning First Alliance and its members are proud to support a critical effort to help ensure a bright future for our children. 

As we know, when we support our public schools, we support our kids. Families, communities, and our nation’s future depends on the next generation. Let’s support one another and work together to prepare our kids for the opportunities that await them!
