Foundation Recognized as Leader in Time of Uncertainty


The Barbara Bush Foundation has been recognized by Forbes for its leadership and innovative thinking for at-home learning during a time of fear and uncertainty.


As schools across the nation close to protect students and educators from COVID-19, many parents and caregivers are seeking ways to support their children’s learning outside of the classroom. Guided by former first lady Barbara Bush’s belief that “the parent is the child’s first and best teacher,” the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is committed to empowering parents to fulfill that role everyday—and especially in these uncertain times.

In their article, Coronavirus Champions: A Running List of Brands Getting It Right, Forbes recognizes the Barbara Bush Foundation’s in-house team of literacy and education experts for their expertly curated toolkit of trusted, high-quality online resources that can be used anytime, anywhere.

“The Barbara Bush Foundation has been a leading voice in family literacy for 31 years,” said British A. Robinson, President and CEO. “We feel called to share our expertise so that parents can step into the role of teacher with confidence, helping their children continue to learn and grow while schools are closed.”
