ARC is a global educational movement that advances equity, broad excellence, inclusion, wellbeing, democracy, sustainability, and human rights in high-quality, professionally run systems. As a collaboratory, we promote improvement, innovation and inclusion in schools and larger societies.
2) Who are ARC member systems?
All member systems and global members support, adhere, and promote ARC’s mission statement. Members commit to joining ARC for a term of three (3) years, with the opportunity to renew.
Member systems include three to four participants representing governments (Ministers of Education/Deputy Ministers) and professional associations (unions, inspectorates, etc). Member systems pay a yearly fee of $30,000 CAD and cover transportation costs for participants to attend the annual ARC summit.
Global members are invited organizations who share ARC’s mission and often have an international network and membership. Global members pay a yearly fee of $5,000 CAD and cover transportation costs for participants to attend the annual ARC summit.
Global memberships may be initiated by ARC member systems and partners or through applications from organizations seeking partnership. All proposals will be discussed by the ARC Advisory board in relation to ARC values, organizational scale and sustainability, and ethical considerations, and then referred to the ARC Secretariat for final decision.
