Share the BBA Principles

Help us spread the message that children who are prepared to learn, well nourished, and healthy, who have access to enriching activities, and whose teachers are held accountable in reliable, supportive ways are better able to take advantage of all that school has to offer.

Feed all students well so their teachers can teach. Nearly half of elementary and one third of middle school teachers report having to bring food to class for their students. It's time for a Broader, Bolder Approach to Education!

Demand a stop to NCLB that goes beyond waivers. Great schools focus on whole-child enriching education, not tests. We need a Broader, Bolder Approach to Education!
