Welcome, Education Mayors!
Thank you for visiting the Online Playbook!
I believe that as city mayors, it is our responsibility to share our best work with one another. The best education initiatives are a result of collaboration, not from working in isolated silos.This playbook is dedicated to sharing information about the best practices, programs, and policies that mayors can initiate in order to eliminate the achievement gap.
Across our nation, there are many mayors working tirelessly to increase the educational opportunity of their cities’ children and youth. This playbook will serve as a way to connect mayors, regardless of their political affiliation or span of control, and provide them with game plans to eliminate the opportunity gap from cradle to career.
Our cities’ kids are our most precious resource. It’s time to take action and work together in ensuring that every child has access and opportunity to a successful and rewarding future.
