Class of ’27 presents distinct yet complementary personal stories from places too often ignored in America. Each of the three portraits demonstrates that children from distressed communities, despite their circumstances, are more likely to grow into productive and civically engaged adults if they receive support in their earliest years. Committed to supporting the children’s potential, each community is a place of hope, inspiration and resilience.

CLASS OF ’27 is an important and largely untold story about families struggling to provide educational opportunities for their preschool age children, and the committed teachers working tirelessly on their behalf.
