For the past year, we've been working with the MA Early Childhood Funder Collaborative to build an interactive, accessible tool that maps the current ecosystem of supports for young children and their families across the Commonwealth. The early childhood field is complex and hard to understand, which has led to inaction in policy and funding and deeply embedded inequities and systemic barriers for many Massachusetts families.
On November 1, 2022 the EdImpact Research Consortium held a virtual policy discussion on the current state of COVID relief funds in Massachusetts schools.
On June 9, 2022 we hosted a conversation in Holyoke on the state of education in Western Massachusetts. This event put a local focus on the findings of our Condition of Education in the Commonwealth report and brought together members of the business and education communities to discuss supporting educators and planning for the future after the challenges of the past two years.
The past two years have challenged, taxed, and changed our education system like never before. As students and educators enter a third year of living and learning in a pandemic, how can our education system adapt to best support school communities now and in the years to come?
