World-class education for every child
Empowering students, educators, and communities in Indianapolis
The Mind Trust invests in public education to transform lives in neighborhoods across Indianapolis. We work toward a day when race and income are no longer predictors of life outcomes.
Our non-partisan goal is clear:
Ensuring Indianapolis is a city where every child has access to an excellent education, in pursuit of a day when race and income are no longer predictors of life outcomes by doubling the number of students within Indianapolis Public Schools geography who are academically proficient by 2027.
- Racism, discrimination, privilege, and oppression in our education system and society at-large have deeply adverse effects on students of color and must be disrupted.
- All children can excel with great teachers and school leaders who are empowered with the autonomy to innovate and make decisions at the school and classroom levels.
- Neighborhoods and communities most impacted by educational inequity must be the ones to drive systemic changes in our educational system.
