Let's Rebuild the Future
EdBuild is a new non-profit dedicated to bringing common sense to our school funding system — allowing public schools to innovate and better serve their students and communities.
FundingDelivery of education has changed drastically in the past 50 years, but the way we fund our schools hasn't kept up. Schools can't serve students in today's environment without adequate funding and maximum flexibility. We must stop funding the schools of today based on the delivery assumptions of the past.
The way we fund our schools is arbitrary at best and regressive at worst. We need more equitable models of resource distribution that address the unique needs of individual students and their communities - no matter the zip code.
Our reliance on antiquated funding models bolsters arbitrary school district boundaries. In many communities, these boundaries lock students out of opportunity. Changing how we determine access to schools can open the gates to opportunity for children in our neediest neighborhoods.
