Sparking Student Breakthroughs: Improving Educational and Economic Opportunities for All
Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (EST)
How can we strengthen and scale pathways to college and career success that benefit every single student? What innovative policies – proven to work in other states – should Massachusetts implement to better connect what students are learning in high school to the career opportunities companies are creating? A recent poll shows that 88% of voters say making improvements to education to ensure students are ready for college and careers should be among the next governor's top priorities.
Join the Student Pathways to Success coalition for a virtual event on November 29th at 1pm featuring state and national leaders:
