Equity

Historic divides of poverty, race and learning differences continue to hold back many students. We believe ALL students should have equitable opportunities to learn and succeed in school and in life.

Accountability

We demand excellence through meaningful standards and robust accountability about school quality and student progress from early childhood through postsecondary education.

Ambition

We study, inform and engage citizens to achieve the ambitious goal of moving Kentucky to the nation’s top tier in student achievement in this generation.

The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit citizen’s advocacy group. The Committee continuously studies priority issues, informs the public and policymakers and engages citizens, business leaders, families, students, and others in a shared mission to move Kentucky to the top tier of all states for education excellence and equity for all children.

The Committee focuses on the direct impact of these endeavors on education quality and student success.
