About Stand for Children Indiana

For 20 years, we have advocated for better and equal education standards for all children by utilizing a strong three-pillared approach: Parents, Politics, and Policy. This approach by our organization has also led to numerous policy, legislative, and election wins here in Indiana. Stand for Children Indiana has worked to identify local education challenges, research data-proven solutions, and advocate for implementing those ideas that are working to improve educational outcomes.

This means we are working with parents in some of Indianapolis’ lowest performing public schools to help empower them to stand up and have a voice in turning around their school.

We are also rallying teachers and parents to push for laws at the legislature that create an environment where greater student outcomes are achievable, especially in our lowest performing school and our most challenged neighborhoods.

From the Statehouse to the schoolhouse, we are empowering parents and engaging state leaders to transform failing schools so that every child – regardless of their background – has access to a high-quality education.
