The Worcester Education Collaborative will be hosting John B. King Jr. at our tenth annual meeting on October 29th from 5pm to 7pm at Mechanics Hall, located at 321 Main Street in downtown Worcester. Dr. King. is best known for his service as United States Secretary of Education under the Obama administration. He currently serves as President and CEO of The Education Trust, an organization that works to close opportunity gaps that disproportionately affect students of color and students from low-income families.
WEC just wrapped up another successful year of our Reading Together program funded by the AbbVie Foundation. Read more about the impacts of this program and some of the exciting additions we made this year!
WEC is a member of a statewide partnership of education, civil rights, and social justice organizations pressing for equity in education in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Education Equity Partnership came together over a year ago and produced the report, Number One for Some, which focused on the significant disparities in education opportunity, access, and ultimately outcomes in our commonwealth.
