Our school district is badly underfunded. Under the Promise Act — a bill backed by the MTA and other members of the Fund Our Future coalition — Worcester Public Schools would receive an estimated $70 million a year once additional funding is fully phased in. Come join a community conversation about how our students could benefit from these additional funds — and hear what we can do together to make sure our state lawmakers approve this important legislation.
The Conference is the outgrowth of several years of work by a coalition of community partners in the School Climate Subcommittee under the umbrella of the Worcester Mayor and City Manager’s Youth Violence Prevention Initiative. By enhancing our community’s knowledge on how to effectively meet the distinct needs of boys we hope to inform practice and improve educational and life outcomes for our youth. Organizing partners include the Worcester Education Collaborative, the Boys and Girls Club of Worcester, Worcester State University, St. John’s High School, among others.
