The mission of the Public Education Foundation (PEF) is to improve student achievement in Hamilton County public schools so that all students succeed in learning and in life. We do this by:
- Partnering with schools to develop plans for transformation that will engage students, keep them in school, and challenge each one of them to reach his or her full potential;
- Providing teachers and school leaders proven tools for creating this transformational change;
- Providing detailed data that allows schools and teachers to understand strengths and weaknesses and target interventions most effectively;
- Creating opportunities for excellent educators to share their skills and knowledge with others, thereby spreading best practices to every corner of the school system.
