Young students coloring on yellow paper


Empower Illinois began as a research and policy organization. Our research has been focused on four core topics: (1) the under-identification of low-income students and students of color as gifted, (2) the insufficient support for students with unique abilities, (3) the lack of course offerings to students across diverse learning environments; (4) the limited access low-income and working-class families have to the same education opportunities as their wealthier peers.
