The Yass Foundation for Education advances the four core STOP principles: Sustainable, Transformational, Outstanding, and Permissionless education. Each year, the Foundation will reward dozens of organizations, building a growing network of innovative providers that
demonstrate these qualities in their commitment to new ideas, technologies, and approaches to learning that bring education into
the 21st century. The Foundation is powered by the Center for Education Reform (CER) in partnership with Forbes.
Our Yass Prize partnership with Forbes and CER has been one of the best things we’ve done in education over the past 25 years.

It's about engaging families.
It's helping families step into their power — making sure that the voices of families are really front and center in guiding solutions.
What has been created here at the accelerator is truly incredible.
We may never know how pivotal this really is for education in America right here, right now. This group of people will work together to force real change permissionlessly.
We realized long ago that there’s a lot of money in the system, and it’s just not directed to the children.
