The Alliance is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of business leaders committed to improving Kansas and Missouri’s education systems. The organization was founded on the premise that the business community has the obligation, opportunity and capacity to increase the college and workforce readiness of all students through an ambitious, aggressive and comprehensive reform agenda.
Strengthen the economy now because every $1 invested in early care and education generates nearly $2 for the local economy.
Generate high returns on investment of $16 for every $1 spent due to reduced crime, welfare and special education costs.
Participate in legislative hearings and briefings. Participate in press events when new research reports are released. Communicate with elected officials through letters, calls, or personal meetings.
Educate policy makers and the public!
Our vision is that every student in Kansas and Missouri has access to a high performing school and graduates with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to succeed in a competitive, global economy.
