The Broad Residency 2016-2018


All children should have access to a high quality education regardless of their socioeconomic status or class. Today, this is not the case. Children in underserved communities are being left behind. Growing up in inner city Chicago, I experienced the achievement gap and its impact first hand. I was lucky. With the support of my parents, teachers who worked with me after hours, and weekend enrichment classes, I received a strong K-12 foundation and reached my goal of matriculating through a rigorous collegiate program. Many of my peers did not have this same opportunity. It is my dream that all children in underserved communities have access to a strong education so that they too can discover, dream, achieve, and become positive contributors in their communities and in the world.

Krista Turnage served as Special Projects Manager for Indianapolis Public Schools during The Broad Residency.
