About Education Rising

write a brighter future

The Kauffman Foundation is collaborating with organizations, educators, and community members to build a system of high-performing urban schools in Kansas City staffed by highly effective teachers and leaders. 

We need passionate leaders with great vision to raise the education standards in Kansas City. Inspired innovators who want to write the course of change. Pioneers who want to catalyze historic reform.

Our ultimate goal: Increase the percentage of students reaching academic and life outcomes that prepare them for success after high school.
