Pathway 2 Tomorrow: Local Visions for America’s Future (P2T) matches responsive and agile education policy solutions with state and community needs. Connecting educators, practitioners, parents, researchers, advocates, nonprofit and business leaders, and entrepreneurs with state and local policymakers, P2T and its Partners value innovative and agile solutions with the potential to transform state and local education outcomes.
Launching with a Call for Proposals across the field of state and local communities, P2T will support the development of selected proposals into policy papers and curate the final papers into a catalog of solutions for state and local leaders. In its second phase, it will support state and local coalitions – united by shared policy priorities and intended outcomes – to support the effectiveness of local control in education through the implementation of responsive, local, and regional solutions.
Responsive to Local Needs
P2T launched in direct response to the evolving needs of state and local leaders and their views on the current policy landscape. Governors, legislators, civil rights advocates, and education and business leaders agree on the need to discover the best and most innovative, and agile solutions and give them more exposure and support. In addition, great ideas already exist across their communities; P2T aims to support their implementation and scale. P2T’s Partners and Supporters are organizations and individuals who represent diverse and bipartisan perspectives and support the critical need for fresh ideas in state and local education policy.
