    PENCIL (Public Education Needs Civic Involvement in Learning) was founded in 1995 to galvanize and coordinate meaningful civic involvement in New York City public education to improve student achievement. Its flagship program, Principal For A Day, pairs thousands of New Yorkers from the private sector with the City's schools. This and other PENCIL programs foster hundreds of long-term partnerships with schools, generate millions of dollars worth of donations of cash, goods, and services for schools and school districts, and act as a vehicle through which the City's private sector advocates for educational reform. PENCIL's programs continue to serve as national and international models of private sector engagement in public education.
