Education

You are here:

Quality education is essential to ending the cycle of poverty. It is a critical factor in enhancing a person’s opportunity for economic mobility and asset growth, and puts every child in a position to excel. Public charter schools are a promising alternative to some traditional public schools in underserved neighborhoods, but face significant barriers to expansion. Lack of access to facilities is cited as a primary barrier for many high-performing charter schools. LIIF provides capital for charter schools, which often lack access to traditional public funding mechanisms. In this way, LIIF increases the number of educational opportunities in poor neighborhoods and the life chances of the students in those communities.

Projects

LIIF invests in high-performing charter schools, those that have demonstrated success in increasing the academic and life outcomes of their students.
