The Broad Residency 2018-2020


There should not be an achievement gap. Quality education is a basic human right, necessary to protect people and communities from marginalization and systemic deprivation of opportunity. I want to work to close the achievement gap and enable all students, irrespective of socioeconomic factors, to reach their full potential.
