The COVID pandemic provides us with an opportunity to reimagine education in Boston. Join us to explore data trends across our cradle to career outcomes in Boston and explore what data on student outcomes will be available in the near future to guide our recovery efforts. Hear from community leaders about new ways that we can work together to advance equity and a just education ecosystem in Boston.

With this report card, we will be honoring Paul Grogan, President and CEO of the Boston Foundation for 10 years of leadership and stewardship to the Boston Opportunity Agenda.
