State of Latino Education
At the State of Latino Education Event in New England, participants will learn about the state of Latino education and educator representation across the Commonwealth, as well as learn about efforts to increase educator diversity. As we look at COVID-19 recovery it is imperative that investments in educators of color be at the forefront. Join us in the conversation with state leaders to keep momentum on educators of color as a strategy towards recovery. Join the celebration as we award education champions and school educators for their contributions to our communities.
