About Us


“The future of Alabama is, in large part, dependent upon the education of our children. Here is an opportunity for all of us as Alabama taxpayers to pitch in and raise the education level of our children.”
     -Stewart Welch III, investment manager and founder of The Welch Group

"Every school can now develop new ideas that come from their local teachers and their local principals and then put those ideas into practice. . . Local educators deserve the freedom and opportunity to make their schools better.  That's what this legislation provides.”
     -Alabama Governor Robert Bentley
