Trey Csar has been the president of the independent, nonprofit Jacksonville Public Education Fund since 2009, growing it into an active voice for universally high quality public schools in the nation’s 20th largest district and across Florida. The organization conducts research, mobilizes the community, invests in strategic programs and policies and advocates for common-sense systemic solutions to improve student performance. Before joining the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, Csar worked as a youth organizer in San Francisco, working to involve students throughout California in advocating for better educational opportunities for their fellow students. He taught in an inner-city elementary school in Houston with Teach For America and served as an assistant principal at KIPP New Orleans West (NOW), a school set up in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to work with low-income students. Csar has a master’s degree in education policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Florida.
