Equity and Excellence

The Cradle to Career Alliance believes that all students deserve the opportunity to high quality educational experiences.  Our goal is to ensure equity for all children in Boone County by removing barriers to each child’s educational success. Equity is intrinsic to our mission.

Our community currently faces achievement gaps across all core educational milestones. Although we promote a data-driven approach, our children are not numbers.  Behind every data point, there is a child with potential to be the next great inventor, educator, scientist, parent, musician, or something we haven’t imagined yet.

When children do not meet their potential, we miss out on a wealth of ideas and talent. And so, we owe it to each child, and to ourselves, to eliminate this gap. As a community, we cannot accept chronic inequality. By working together, we can find and take action on research -proven strategies that promote successful outcomes for all students.
