Schott supports an “Opportunity to Learn” frame on educational policy, which focuses on ensuring that resources are provided for all students to have an equitable opportunity to learn and produce high achievement outcomes. Schott maintains its historic commitment to institutionalizing an opportunity to learn standard in New York and Massachusetts, while recognizing the strategy for change, when possible, must extend beyond these two states. Schott supports a far reaching implementation strategy and infrastructure that is capable of maneuvering the dynamic relationship between national and state-based movement building to produce federal and state policies to protect an opportunity to learn for all students.
