The Kovner Foundation promotes excellence in public and private education by supporting public charter schools that make measurable improvements in children’s lives and supporting educational choice and competition through vouchers, scholarships and other initiatives that give parents and students options.
Closing the Achievement Gap
The Foundation partners, including Achievement First, Success Academy Charter Schools, and Uncommon Charter Schools, are realizing extraordinary success on metrics ranging from test scores to graduation rates, college enrollment and completion. These organizations are closing the achievement gap for children in under-served communities that suffer because of inadequate traditional public schools.
