Education Reform

RBC education mentor working with students

Educational efficacy is critical to the long-term prosperity of the region. The RBC works to invest in the economic future of the region by advancing opportunities for learning and academic excellence for every child in the region, especially disadvantaged youth.

We aim to ensure all students have access to an excellent education by developing strong leaders for every classroom and school, promoting high-performing school districts, and fostering quality governance at local and state levels.

Support and Develop Leaders: We work with organizations such as KIPP St. Louis to recruit teachers and principals to the region.

Student Achievement: We support the St. Louis Public Schools, Normandy Schools Collaborative, Jennings, Riverview Gardens, and Ferguson-Florissant school districts by making strategic investments that will ensure better academic outcomes for youth.

Education Reform Policy: The RBC monitors policy at the local and state level and works with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to advocate for improved education reform policies.
