ABOUT US

One Chance Illinois is based on a simple notion: kids only get one chance at a quality education. When it comes to a child’s education, there are no do-overs.

We seek to change the education policy conversation. Today, too many education thought leaders and talking heads argue about which type of school is best able to serve children. Instead, parents must be empowered to choose the best school for their child.

Let’s be clear — we do not favor one school type over another. Instead we support access to great schools and educational opportunities for all kids. Period.

Most importantly, we believe in realistic solutions– always putting children first and working with educators who need to implement them.

We need Illinoisans to join us and demand access to better schools and educational opportunities for all students across the state.
