The mission statement of the foundation is:

Our mission is to promote changes in policy and practice that lead to improved student opportunities and outcomes. To pursue this mission, we combine our written work—including research reports, policy analyses, smaller complementary products such as "Charts You Can Trust," and op-eds in national news publications—with a multi-dimensional communications strategy. This combination of research and analysis with strategic communications creates numerous opportunities to present our policy proposals in testimony, hearings, legislative briefings, and a wide range of exchanges with policymakers and policy influencers.
