The Education Cabinet focuses on supporting learning from early learning through higher education. We also support learning wherever it takes place from schools to community-based settings. Our ambitious, achievable vision requires collaboration and constant communication to:
- Address persistent challenges that frustrate our collective ability to improve schools and achieve educational equity;
- Fully engage the city’s schools and community-based learning institutions in promoting learning and development throughout the city at all times;
- Modernize our approaches to learning and our school buildings;
- Provide communities — parents, caregivers and neighbors — the tools that they need to actively support young people’s growth and development.
We work with students, parents and educators and a variety of institutions and systems like schools, youth-serving organizations, colleges and universities and Boston’s cultural institutions to meet our objectives.
