  • Core beliefs

Members of the PIE Network are united by our belief that education can—and should—be transformative, and that change is needed now so that every student has an equitable and excellent education. We also believe that policy is a critical lever for systems change, establishing expectations, and driving resources to meet needs.

We put these beliefs into action by:

  • Listening to, engaging, and authentically elevating the leadership of students, families, and educators.
  • Using data and evidence to drive innovation, improvement, and quality.
  • Changing the system so that that policy, funding, and education designs adapt to best support student needs and outcomes.
  • Policy Pillars

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

GREAT EDUCATORS

Ensure teachers and leaders are excellent, well-trained educators who continue to improve their instructional practice through support and development guided by meaningful and actionable evaluation.

INNOVATIVE OPTIONS

Ensure all families can exercise their power to choose and access diverse, innovative, and excellent educational options designed and resourced to meet the unique needs and interests of their students.

RESPONSIVE SYSTEMS

Promote dynamic policies, pathways, leaders, and funding systems that are intentionally designed to best address and adapt to the unique needs of every student.
