Good Reason Houston is committed to working with others to increase the number of students learning in great public schools. By 2025, we will increase the number of students learning in A and B schools by 60,000–a 25% increase of students in high-performing schools.
Good Reason Houston partners with organizations that acknowledge the inequity in educational institutions and are committed to redesigning systems, practices, and policies that ensure all students thrive academically and socially, particularly historically marginalized students of color.
Good Reason Houston invests to accelerate progress within districts and promote courageous decision-making that drastically changes the trajectory of school performance, and sets students on a path to thrive.
Good Reason Houston works with school districts to identify, understand, and remove barriers to achieving equitable student outcomes, ensuring that all students have access to high-quality learning opportunities.
Good Reason Houston is cultivating the conditions that will enable partners to sustain district effectiveness, improved school quality, and equitable student outcomes over time.
Good Reason Houston aims to continuously learn and improve so that our investments and supports lead to meaningful community change, scalable impact, and an accelerated path to seeing that every child, in every neighborhood, excels in a world-class public school and thrives in the Houston of tomorrow.
Everyone has their own good reason to make sure Houston kids get the education they deserve. But one thing is true for all of us: it will take everyone working together to improve public school education for every child in Houston. You can do your part by making a gift to Good Reason Houston on Giving Tuesday.
