About Digital Learning Day
The Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington, DC–based national policy and advocacy organization, is dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those who are traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship. The Alliance focuses on America’s six million most at-risk secondary school students—those in the lowest achievement quartile—who are most likely to leave school without a diploma or to graduate unprepared for a productive future. To this end, the group sponsors and promotes Digital Learning Day annually.
