Turahn Dorsey

Chief of Education

My name is Rahn Dorsey and I’m Boston’s first-ever Chief of Education. Mayor Walsh appointed me in September 2014. My charge is to set a strategic agenda for the city to improve the quality of instruction and student support across Boston’s educational ecosystem and better integrate school, community and work-based learning opportunities. You can learn about my early life here and my professional experience prior to joining the Mayor’s Cabinet here.

As Chief of Education, I collaborate with young people, parents, educators, K-12 and higher education leaders and nonprofit and private sector innovators to develop strategies that fully bring learning to life in Boston. I look forward to sharing  insights from my work and from these amazing partnerships with you on my Bright + Bold blog (debuting soon).
