The Broad Academy 2014-2015


Great schools — where creative educators engage students in work that really matters — are the right of every student, parent and community. If we want education to continue to be the great equalizer of our nation, we must empower and support our educators as they do this hard work, especially in the places that need them the most. We also must have the courage to take action when even one of our students does not have access to a high-quality education. Our work is not done until every student has the opportunity to attend a great school.

Veronica Conforme’s career has been all about ensuring student access and success. As vice president of The College Board, she led a campaign to ensure that low-income students are equipped to get through college, not just to college. As a senior leader in the New York Chity Department of Education and as chancellor of the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan, she ensured every dollar and every decision was focused on the best interests of students. Now, as chief executive officer at UP Education Network, she is leading an effort to transform low-performing schools into engines of excellence.
