Learn about the Opportunity to Learn Campaign’s proposal for a federal resource standards and accountability system and how this system would supplement state education funding and accountability, improve resource distribution efficiencies and yield grater return on investment.
In far too many states, students are denied access to the resources that provide a meaningful opportunity to learn. There is no substitute for opportunity, not in our schools, our workplaces, or our society. Opportunity is at the heart of our American dream.

Too many attend under-performing schools that lack the resources necessary to effectively raise achievement.
