The Broad Residency 2018-2020
Education is the best tool we have to better ourselves and our community, yet quality education is not always available to the students whose lives could be most transformed by it. This is not only a failure of our society, but a personal travesty for too many. I’ve chosen a career in urban education because I believe we need to go beyond achieving equity—we need to over invest in our least advantaged communities.
