We believe that:
A quality public education is critical to a healthy democratic society and vital to our state and nation.
The development of leadership capacity is critical to the success of Texas public schools.
Dynamic partnerships are necessary to carry out our work.
We must cultivate a broad network of allies committed to strengthening public education in our state and nation.
The participatory nature of the organization is vital to the success of our mission.
The ideals described in Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas are the compelling principles that guide our pursuit of these enduring aspirations.
