The mission of the Jackson Foundation, Inc., is to motivate and educate children and adults through the use of technology in the area of the arts, science, and humanities. It is the underlying conviction of the foundation that education is the most significant investment that is made to improve the future of our community, our state, and our world.
Children and adults are naturally motivated to learn when their educational experiences are challenging, personal and have nexus and practicality to the world in which they live.
Teachers, like other professionals, deserve the opportunity to continually learn and improve their practice and should accept the responsibility for how best to teach the children in their charge.
The rapidity with which society is changing requires that all students, young and old, help to develop an appetite for learning that will last throughout their lives. It is The Jackson Foundation's belief that technology and innovation can positively impact a wide range of students crossing social economic lines and enhancing their educational experience.
