Todo estudiante debe poder asistir a una escuela que provea educación de calidad libre de discriminación.

Trabajamos por y apoyamos los derechos de todos los estudiantes de tener acceso a una escuela limpia, un entorno educativo seguro, materiales didácticos adecuados y maestros calificados.

Apoyamos la creación de una cultura de éxito en todas las escuelas y comunidades para que todos los estudiantes puedan alcanzar su máximo potencial.
