Join us as we hit the road the week of September 12th for our annual bus tour. This year’s event kicks off in Washington DC and continues across six states to celebrate the local successes and the progress of impactful education programs, policies, and the people supporting them. From rural towns to big cities, educators, schools, families, and communities share a belief that a quality education can expand opportunity and ensure our nation's fundamental promise: that with dreams and determination, each of us can fulfill our great potential.

Working together, all of us can ensure students encounter school as a safe, nurturing, joyful place to learn and grow. We can support and lift up the vital work teachers do each day. We can give every child the opportunity to succeed. That's what the Opportunity Across America Tour will highlight. That's the journey we hope you're here to follow, and help make possible.
