At United Way of America, our goal is to advance the common good through the promotion of quality education, stable income, and good health for everyone. In education this means helping children and youth achieve their potential, from birth through high school graduation.
Every 26 seconds a student drops out of high school, with this educational crisis disproportionately affecting minority and low-income students. United Way of America is committed to improving educational opportunities for all of the nation's students, regardless of ethnicity, disability, income, or geography. United Way realizes the importance of quality along the continuum of education and will advocate for policies aimed at increasing student achievement from early childhood education and school-readiness, to high school completion, college readiness, and workforce development.
