New Haven Network for Public Education


The New Haven Network for Public Education, Inc. (formerly the New Haven Public Education Fund) was created as an initiative of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven in 1986 in response to concerns the New Haven community has expressed regarding public education.

The Mission of the New Haven Network for Public Education is to facilitate community advocacy in order to improve and achieve the highest quality of public education for all children in New Haven Public Schools.
