Current Hourglass Initiatives

Education

Quality Improvement and Cost Efficiency -

We provide elected officials, educators, and citizens with information and ideas on a variety of issues affecting the quality and cost of education in the county, including pensions, mandate reform, school consolidation, fair funding, and best practices that are effective elsewhere.

Innovation -

Improving the quality of education has a profound impact on college and technical school admissions, job readiness, economic growth, and the ravages of poverty.  We champion innovative and technology-driven initiatives like flipped classrooms, open campuses, and early childhood education.
