We’ve done some remodeling.
Today it’s my pleasure to introduce you to our new and improved website, a digital destination for education policy and advocacy in the Ocean State!
Like our old site, it has all you need to stay informed, from our original research and policy analysis to school report cards to the latest updates on the education issues facing Rhode Island.
It’s also home to the online headquarters for our 2013 legislative campaign: Modern Funding for Modern Schools.
In the last two years, the General Assembly has laid the groundwork to balance longstanding inequalities in our schools by passing a new funding formula and setting aside a fund for full-day kindergarten.
Now more than ever, we must stay the course and continue to fully support the implementation of the funding formula and to find resources to help districts offer full-day kindergarten. We’re hard at work to make sure our schools get the funding they need to prepare their students for colleges and careers in the 21st century.
Learn more about Modern Funding for Modern Schools and how you can join the campaign.
We’re excited to take another step towards great schools for all Rhode Island children—and we’re even more excited to have a new online space to capture it all. So make yourself at home, click around to see what’s new and make sure to bookmark www.ri-can.org for future visits, too!
