Over 200,000 children in Massachusetts live in poverty.* Most of these children attend public schools that are under-funded, under-staffed, and struggling to meet state and federal mandates.
Join the movement for education justice and register for The Church’s Role in Education Equity, a fall regional forum co-sponsored by All Our Children and St. Mary's, Barnstable. Learn how to:
- Form a mutually transforming partnership with a local school
- Build relationships to strengthen your community’s schools
- Share what’s already going on in Massachusetts congregations
- Join the community of Episcopalians supporting public education
Participants will leave with hope and encouragement that together, we can effect the change we seek: a deep commitment to education equity as part of God’s dream and the church’s mission. Learn how to inspire your congregation to embrace a transformative, community-minded mission.
