The Distinguished Educator's Report highlights the attention of the community on the breakdown of public education in Rochester. There are systemic failures; certainly not failures of our children, nor of any one leader, teacher or board. Systemic and transformational change is needed.

"Our Children. Our Future." is our best chance to achieve this goal. ROC the Future, an alliance of over 60 leading area institutions, brings together parents, educators, employers, and providers, which uniquely positions us to lead this effort. Together, we can work with NYS Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia and the Board of Regents to define a path forward. 

By signing the petition you are joining this effort to support the Core Community Agreements for Education that define the need for urgent action. Your support is critical to ensuring everyone works collectively for Our Children and Our Future.

Core Community Agreements for Education:

1. The Distinguished Educators Report is right. 

2. The status quo is unacceptable. 

3. It’s the system, not the children. 

4. This is a unique moment in time for shared action. 

5. Change is possible with the right unified approach.

6. The right change will benefit all our children 

7. Equity for All 

8. Transformative 

9. Data Informed
