Vision:To serve as a model of positive leadership and advocacy for ensuring quality educational opportunities for all military children affected by mobility, family separation, and transition.
Overview of Military and Military-Connected Children Demographics
Over 2 million children have a mother or father who served in Iraq or Afghanistan
Home Schooled: 6%*
On average, 90% of public education funding comes from state and local sources.
Data Quality:We support the inclusion of a military-connected student identifier in state public school data systems to help us better understand and track the academic progress of these students and they move through their K-12 school years.
College and Career Ready:
We support programs designed to ensure that all students are college and career-ready when they graduate from high school.
Implementation of the Interstate Compact:
We support the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children. The Compact provides the best opportunity for continuity for mobile military children throughout their K-12 school years.
