Newsletter: Week of January 23, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

What do we hope for our children to become: happy? engaged? empathetic? skilled? good at taking tests? What kinds of schools would help our children grow into the people we hope they will be?

This Sunday, join us for an important and timely conversation with Senator Pat Jehlen about the importance of equitable education in Massachusetts, and what our future can look like.

Pat Jehlen has served in the Mass. Senate since 2005; she represents Somerville, Medford, and parts of Cambridge and Winchester. She has chaired the Elder Affairs Committee, and serves on other committees including Education and Ways and Means. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street, free parking in the Harvard Littauer Lot.
