Organization:National Opportunity to Learn Campaign
Short Description:The Opportunity To Learn (OTL) Campaign seeks to instill a new framework for systemic education reform. The power of the underlying concept lies in its movement building around a fundamental value—that all children have a right to the four core resources research has shown are needed to give them a fair and substantive opportunity to learn: access to highly effective teachers, early childhood education, college preparatory curricula, and equitable instructional resources.
Annotation:The Opportunity To Learn (OTL) Campaign seeks to instill a new framework for systemic education reform. The power of the underlying concept lies in its movement building around a fundamental value—that all children have a right to the four core resources research has shown are needed to give them a fair and substantive opportunity to learn: access to highly effective teachers, early childhood education, college preparatory curricula, and equitable instructional resources. The OTL campaign is a collaborative, multi-state and federal strategy to make the stewards of our nation’s resources accountable for providing those resources—with particular emphasis on a new federal role. It builds on the best of the standards movement—and makes the case for systemic resource accountability supported by education as a basic civil right, a right dramatically denied to too many children, particularly children of color, in our current system.
