Project Equity: Superintendents demand educational equity for all students
Dear Malden Colleagues and Community Stakeholders,
I know you care greatly about your children, the education they receive, and the job market and economy that awaits them in the coming years.
In recent years, it has become evident to parents, teachers, superintendents, school committees, and lawmakers that the educational model we are currently using is in desperate need of an overhaul. The way we teach and the way students learn will have a significant impact on our economy in the coming years. Right now, that educational model is broken and needs to be overhauled to meet those needs.
Simply put, we must find ways to expand access to educational opportunities for all our students, teach viable work-related skills, and most importantly, insure we include students in the bottom of the income bracket. Our local and statewide economy is dependent on all of us to insure all students have the skill set for today’s workplace.
To that end, the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents is sponsoring community forums on Tuesday January 8th at 6 p.m. in three locations: Fitchburg State University, Malden High School (Jenkins Auditorium), and New Bedford High School. Local and state educational leaders will discuss the gravity of the situation and propose solutions. It is our hope that these forums will bring attention to this critical issue and instigate the changes needed to insure all students, regardless of zip code or income level, have equal access to educational opportunities.
I strongly encourage you to attend one of these upcoming forums. To learn more, go to www.massupt.org
