The To&Through Project strives to create equitable education outcomes for Chicago Public Schools students by helping educators use data for inquiry and action.
Practice Anti-Racism and Equity: We recognize the legacy of racism and work to interrogate our individual and collective biases. We accept the discomfort of conflict and find the courage to interrupt inequitable mindsets, policies, and practices.
Respect All Forms of Expertise: We believe that students, families, and communities are experts in their own experience, and we respect educators as professionals. We share data and tools, not answers.
Have Integrity: We prioritize students over institutions and take responsibility for the impact and consequences of our data.
Be Creative and Curious: We are learners who prioritize the collection and incorporation of feedback.
Care for Each Other: We value each other as individuals and human beings, and we laugh, when we can.
