Welcome colleagues,

We are proud to introduce CCE's new "look" and our completely redesigned website - - a place for you to learn more about  our work  and gain access to helpful resources to support your teaching, leading, and learning. 

We are also happy to introduce our refocused monthly e-communication - now named  Pathways to Equity . Here, we will feature current updates on CCE activities, give voice to practitioners in the field, and offer our latest thinking in our efforts to advance equity in public education. We invite you to explore these resources and get to know the new CCE.   
All the best in the new school year!

Colorblind Education is the 'Wrong Response'
Earlier this year, CCE and the  Annenberg Institute for School Reform (AISR) released the second phase of a  research report on Black and Latino males in Boston Public Schools. In response to the report's findings, Dan French, Executive Director of CCE, and Warren Simmons, Executive Director of AISR wrote a  commentary in Education Week urging  the implementation of systems and classroom practices that move from colorblind to explicit and responsive approaches to race and gender.

"All of us must work harder to create schools that embrace students and families of all backgrounds, rather than places where some are asked to leave their cultures, languages, and experiences outside the schoolhouse door." 

Dan French & Warren Simmons, Colorblind Education is the 'Wrong Response'

"One of the most important ways that QPA really shaped my practice was that it helped me think about
student growth instead of
an end product."
