Massachusetts’ lack of educational equity — wide gaps in achievement and outcomes for all students — is among the most important issues facing the Commonwealth. The Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE) held a forum on the topic this week, and among the key factors discussed is connecting students to learning outside of the classroom, often in real-world situations, to spark their imagination and motivation. MBAE interviewed 12 leaders of color about what it takes to achieve more equity, and their ideas are captured in a new report, Solving Inequities in Education: Leaders of Color Speak Out.
