Thank you for visiting the FutureBuilders website. As the non-profit education foundation of the Missouri School Boards' Association it is our goal to celebrate the successes of our public schools and to recognize the achievements of both students and school leaders.

We believe that public education is the foundation of our democracy and that it is imperative that we counter the negative stereotyping of public schools so often expounded by the media and so-called "experts."

Although FutureBuilders has been in existence for two decades, under the presidency of Paul Morris, MSBA began making a concentrated effort to enhance the activities and the visibility of the foundation. Paul's sudden passing in February of 2009 provided additional impetus and a renewed commitment on the part of the FutureBuilders board of directors to ensure that this vision is fulfilled.

In the days ahead MSBA FutureBuilders will continue working to spread the news about the good things going on day in and day out in Missouri's public schools. Our unofficial motto is "Research, not rhetoric" and we plan to use that as our model as we help tell the true story of the successes of our public schools.

Melissa Randol, Chief Executive Officer
