Our Work in Education

Casey’s two-generation approach to education means helping kids prepare for and progress in school while also helping their parents to gain financial stability so they can be their children’s first and best teachers. We do this by:

Making third grade reading a national priority

A broad coalition is working through the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading to enlist parents, schools, educators, communities and policymakers in a concerted focus on school readiness, reading proficiency, attendance and summer learning.

New research affirms that improving early reading skills is an essential part of ensuring more kids will succeed academically, graduate from high school on time and prosper as adults.

Boosting early learning in Atlanta and East Baltimore

While elementary kids are learning to read and write, preschoolers are preparing to follow in their tracks at the Early Learning and Literacy Center, co-located in Atlanta’s Dunbar Learning Complex.

A new community school and early childhood center in East Baltimore will become a hub for resident involvement and learning.

Promoting high-quality early care and education

Evidence tells us that early childhood interventions are among the best investments our nation can make. The rate of return provides reduced crime, an educated workforce and more stable families.

Demonstration sites in Buffalo, Columbus and San Antonio are helping us explore how to engage parents with young children as part of an emerging family-centered community change project.

Sustaining Momentum

Entering the foster care system can catapult a youth’s academic career into a devastating tailspin marred by too many new-kid-in-the-classroom transitions. This report highlights the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s four-year effort to counter such educational instability. It highlights key lessons learned and leaves readers with specific recommendations and next steps for continuing Casey’s work. The goal? Give these youth the support and security that they need to succeed in school—and the world beyond.
