At THINK Together our Vision is Educational excellence and equity for all kids.  Our Mission is to Create opportunities for all kids to discover their passions and reach their full potential.  At the Principal’s Exchange, the Mission is very much aligned with the same objectives and values.  Ultimately, these ideals involve helping the next generation realize the American Dream and, in doing so, help keep America great.

Social mobility is part and parcel of the American Dream.  Recently, Pacific Standard magazine created a really interesting infographic (link below) on the interplay between immigration, education, social mobility and economic growth.  With an ageing native population, the U.S. can’t sustain historical economic growth rates without a steady inflow of immigrants and a system that can help them be upwardly mobile.  California is ground zero for this work.  Fully 1/3 of all first and second generation immigrants in the U.S. live here.

Together, our work is part of creating the systems that enable this upward mobility.  Thanks for being part of creating the next-generation of the American Dream
