Broader, Bolder, Better with Elaine Weiss

Date: May 23, 2019

In Broader, Bolder, Better, Elaine Weiss of the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education campaign and former Massachusetts education secretary Paul Reville make a compelling case for a fundamental change in the way we view education. The book builds upon nine years of research by the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education, a national initiative endorsed by more than 60 policy experts and leaders from across the country. It draws on case studies of effective integrated student support efforts in twelve diverse communities to illustrate the variety of strategies that can be adopted locally.

On Thursday, May 23, Weiss and others discussed Broader, Bolder, Better and the need for a large-scale expansion of community-school partnerships in order to provide student supports from cradle to career.
