The Bush Foundation’s education goal is to increase the percentage of students of all backgrounds who attain post-secondary success. We believe our initiatives toward this goal, as well as the initiatives of others in the region, depend on the efforts of many other organizations working to create an ecosystem that supports change.
What do we mean by ecosystem? Any organization trying to make change in education is working within an interdependent and interrelated organizational ecosystem. We are interested in creating the most favorable ecosystem possible for organizations working to reduce educational disparities and improve outcomes for all students in the region. We believe a supportive ecosystem requires access to critical data, a favorable policy environment and the sharing of best practices.
