Every Child Alabama Coalition

Every Child Alabama is a coalition of organizations and individuals working to ensure every child across Alabama has access to a world-class education to reach their full potential. We share a unifying belief that when every child receives a transformative education, it strengthens communities, making them better places to live, work, and raise a family.

Our mission is to support the growth of excellent public charter schools in Alabama to ensure that every child has access to a quality public education.

At New Schools for Alabama, we believe every child has a fundamental right to attend a quality school offering a safe, supportive, and academically-challenging environment. Unfortunately, abundant evidence shows that most low-income and minority children in Alabama today do not have access to such a school.

The Alabama Accountability Act provides low­ income students opportunities unavailable before 2013.

The AAA reformed the public-education system of Alabama in several ways, but perhaps its most important reforms were the creation of scholarships for students and tax credits for parents­ both of which allow students to escape the state's worst schools.  

  • The AAA enables students in Alabama's worst-performing schools to receive a scholarship to cover the costs of attend­ing a better school.
  • Those scholarships are funded by private donations from individuals and corporations to Scholarship Granting Or­ganizations who receive a tax credit for their contribution.

Alabama Policy Institute is a non-partisan, non-profit research and education organization, founded in 1989. Our goal is to see Alabama reach its full potential and see it thrive by influencing and affecting policy.
