The Values Behind ERS

The foundation of ERS work and culture is based on our Core Values. Recently, we delved deeper into what each of these values means to our organization and how they translate into our daily practice and the work we deliver to our district partners. This video features some of us talking about what our favorite core value is and why. Further below, you can read summaries of what the values mean to our work.


  • Impact
    We are passionate about transforming outcomes for urban children. Potential for impact guides our work and our priorities. We have the conviction to take risks on behalf of the children we serve.
  • Teamwork
    We collaborate effectively to achieve the greatest impact. We depend on our collective wisdom and mutual support to ensure that together, we are greater than the sum of our parts.
  • Candor
    We value open, honest, and respectful communication, even when it challenges conventional wisdom and is hard.
  • Learning
    We learn from every experience. We embed capturing and sharing our learning in the way we work every day.
  • Work-Life Balance
    We support every member of the ERS team to integrate meaningful work and professional growth with a healthy personal life throughout his or her career.
  • Service
    We approach our work with humility, respect, and recognition of the challenges facing our partners.

We strive to incorporate these values into everything we do: our work with our partner districts and fellow reform organizations, as well as within our organization.
