Background on StudentsFirst

The crisis in American education is unambiguous.  The United States
spends $600 billion every year on our public schools, which educate
nearly 90% of the country’s children, but we are not getting results.
Schools in the U.S. fail to create social mobility: on average,
students’ life outcomes are still determined too much by their
parents’ backgrounds.  We also lag other countries: of 30 the
industrialized countries regularly surveyed, U.S. schools rank near
the bottom and are not getting better.  This translates into an
economic loss of over $2 trillion per year, and the problem is getting
worse as other countries get better.

Whether we are a just and prosperous society in 20-30 years depends
upon whether we have the courage and conviction necessary to make
radical changes today.

We know that specific reforms that can turn around our schools.  That
is clear from the experience of other countries, which have turned
around their schools.  The evidence here in the US proves that great
teachers, empowered parents, and responsible leadership can deliver
great results for all children.

We also know that the time is ripe for change.  The groundwork has
been laid by the efforts of teachers, parents, and reformers all over
the country.  Many great organizations are pushing to turn around our
schools, and there’s a national demand for change.

StudentsFirst will be a national, comprehensive, and uncompromising
national movement to build upon, connect, and accelerate reforms that
defend the interests of America’s students.  Specifically, the
organization will articulate a gold standard for education reform,
based on the best evidence as to what works in teacher
professionalism, student choice, and system-wide accountability.  We
will provide tools and services to local leaders who want to implement
local change and we will build a membership movement with a national
voice.  We will deploy resources to defend students’ interests with
litigation, mobilization, advocacy, and direct political activity.
Fighters for reform will know that they are not fighting alone.

StudentFirst’s organizational culture flows from a refusal to
compromise on our commitment to students.  We operate in a fast-paced
environment with minimal overhead.  We expect all of our professionals
to thrive in conditions of uncertainty, frequent feedback, and rapid
change.  We focus on accountability for results, and therefore expect
an orientation toward action.  Our national scale requires us to work
virtually and with diverse partners, but our shared mission builds
deep loyalty and sense of team.

Our organization’s Founder and CEO is Michelle Rhee.  Michelle began
her began her career as a teacher in Baltimore’s public schools, and
after a career in teaching and educational reform she was appointed in
2007 to serve as Chancellor of DC Public Schools. Under her
leadership, the worst performing school district in the country became
the only major city system to see double-digit growth in state reading
and state math scores in seventh, eighth and tenth grades over three
years. The graduation rate rose and enrollment increased for the first
time in 40 years after steep declines.  Michelle founded StudentsFirst
in 2010 after stepping down as the DC Chancellor.


Salary is competitive and commensurate with proven performance.

Application Process

The application process will include a resume review, phone interview,
project and in-person interviews.  To be considered for the position,

Exciting SEIU Home Care Internship in Wisconsin!
Jan 04 12:30PM -0800 ^

Intern field organizers wanted for SEIU Healthcare Wisconsin Home Care
campaign. Last May, over 5,000 home care workers voted to join SEIU,
by a 2:1 margin. They voted for the union because they wanted the
opportunity to be paid a decent wage and have health care.
Traditionally home care providers make very low wages and often do not
have health insurance.

We will be fighting to make sure that some of the most marginalized
workers in Wisconsin, those who take care of seniors and the disabled,
get treated with basic fairness and decency. We will be focused on
trying to make sure the state budget also reflects middle-class
priorities, instead of the priorities of Wall Street.

The position will involve working directly with home care workers and
community partners, including the religious community, university
organizations and consumer advocates to ensure that the consumer’s
voice is heard. Interns will also help build relationships with
community partners and help build support for our campaign. This
position will involve a variety of tasks, from going door-to-door,
leading teams of volunteers, to setting up lobby visits with targeted
members of the state-assembly and state-senate.

This position would be 10-30 hours a week (dependent upon intern’s
availability). Working car is desirable but not a requirement. This
position is unpaid; however, expenses and mileage will be reimbursed.
College credit can be arranged with your educational institution. This
is an entry-level position, and provide an opportunity to learn about
organized labor, community organizing and empowering workers and the
community to give them a voice on basic human rights. The position
would start from January 15th-May 31st, and be based in Milwaukee,

Field Coordinator, at, or call at 414-573-6963.
