For eight years, President Obama made the White House a place that brought people together -- incredible students, parents, principals, district leaders, school counselors, teachers, college presidents, professors, business leaders, and more. And after January 2017, the inspiring stories we heard and the incredible people we met no longer had a place to share their experiences and ideas with folks across the country. Now they do.

These stories constantly remind and inspire us of people’s commitment to education. It is the ultimate bedrock of our society, one that people are passionately fighting to make it better. At the White House we were fortunate to get to shine a spotlight on some of those incredible education advocates. We want to continue to shine that spotlight and talk about what’s working and how others can get involved, and hopefully be inspired along the way. We hope you’ll join us.
