Every child in Detroit deserves a great education.
90% of Detroit schools do not have the resources they need to provide one. The crisis in Detroit schools doesn’t stem from a lack of effort, it stems from a lack of equity and financial support.
A quality education empowers children to pursue their greatest ambitions.
Our work is to ensure that one day every child in Detroit has access to a great school and all the opportunities an excellent education brings.
At DCF, we’re creating better quality schools by:
Training and developing remarkable school leaders
Recruiting, coaching and rewarding successful teachers
Providing children with the tools they need in the classroom
Supporting city-wide initiatives that help school systems thrive
