Education is the cornerstone of a prepared workforce and a flourishing society, and the state's plan for education has been designed with full certainty that if we achieve the goals set, we can create a better life for all.
Laying out the priorities, commitments, and goals is only the beginning of shared efforts to improve Rhode Island’s education system. It will take a long, constant effort to bring them to fruition over the next five years and to reach the ambitious benchmarks. There is no doubt that if we set our sights on a better education system and forge forward as one, we can make it a reality.
Rhode Island’s Strategic Plan for Public Education: 2022-2027 is a comprehensive plan that lays out a vision for an education system that offers every Rhode Island student the opportunity to be a lifelong learner. This plan unifies the strategic plans of Rhode Island Department of Education and the RI Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner. Within, there are ambitious, achievable goals to build a stronger, more resilient educational system across our state that will allow every Rhode Island student to succeed.
The plan is divided into three sections: A strategic plan for PK-12 education; a strategic plan for postsecondary education; and a combined plan that outlines the priorities between both systems.
