Informed by the expertise and wisdom of thousands in its community, the Aurora Institute’s 2022 federal policy priorities are a set of nine recommendations designed to ensure education systems move from the current state to future-focused systems capable of preparing all learners with building the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve lifelong success. The priorities include: 

  • Advance education innovations
  • Transform systems of assessments
  • Rethink next generation accountability
  • Create learning ecosystems and competency-based pathways aligned across K-12, higher education, career and technical education, and the workforce
  • Modernize the educator workforce
  • Diversify the educator workforce
  • Advance educational equity
  • Bridge the digital divide
  • Support COVID-19 learning recovery
