Many children enter school without the tools needed for success.Unfortunately, once they fall behind, low income children have fewer chances to catch up.

CSSP’s educational priorities start with equitable opportunities for quality early education and continue through young people graduating from college and moving on to careers. The policy work is focused on the belief that children should be provided with every opportunity to be successful, and that attention to equitable outcomes is of paramount importance to ensuring that goal. With significant racial disparities – Black and Latino children graduating from both high school and college at lower rates than their peers – CSSP is committed to closing educational opportunity gaps, ensuring that children are performing at grade level and that families have the supports they need to ensure their children have the best educational outcomes.
