In America, the promise of public education was to provide equal access to quality education for all children.  The reality is this promise has been broken for several decades.  Sadly, the very children most in need of the stepping stone a great education offers are those that have the most limited educational opportunities.  And far too many children are REQUIRED to attend a failing school simply by virtue of the neighborhood into which they are born, with no other option.  

Without the chance to receive a quality education, the promise of the American dream quickly begins to fade.  Addressing this inequity is what we are all about at MSS: the fundamental belief that all children deserve the opportunity to achieve their version of the American dream.  In order for that dream to be realized, a great education is not a luxury but a requirement.
