Official Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) Statement
Communications Director Jaryn Emhof:
“It’s not surprising that Progress Now New Mexico, a partisan organization that has a history of opposing education reforms that put students first, would attack efforts to improve the quality of education for children across America.
“The Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) openly offers its expertise to legislators and policy makers interested in improving schools and raising student achievement.
“We fully comply with IRS rules when providing policy research and expertise and will continue to do so. This is nothing more than a politically motivated complaint by opponents of education reform.
“ExcelinEd strives to provide our children with the best tools available to receive a quality education. It is our mission to build an education system that maximizes every student’s potential for learning and prepares all students for success in the 21st century.
“We look forward to our National Summit on Education Reform on October 17-18, where over 800 leaders are coming together and joining the movement to make student success a national priority.”
