Honesty in Education
Honesty in Education

We want our kids to have an education that imparts honesty about who we are, integrity in how we treat others and courage to do what’s right to build a better nation. Our goal is to ensure our public schools have empowered educators and a curriculum that helps students understand the past and prepare for the future.
