The Rhode Island Foundation (RIF) has unveiled its 2023 Policy Framework aimed at improving public education in the state. RIF convened the Long-Term Education Planning Committee in 2018 to develop plans for improving education in Rhode Island. The group previously released a 10-year plan for improving education in Rhode Island titled “Chart a Course, Stay the Course: Rhode Island’s Path to a World-Class Public Education System”. The new policy sets out recommendations to improve public education, including providing incentives for recruiting and retaining teachers, loan forgiveness for certain teachers, adjusting the state funding formula, creating a state fund for professional development, and amending the state constitution to make public education a “fundamental right”.
