A city-wide vision for high school completion
The boston opportunity agenda
We facilitated a cross-functional group of educators, employers, and philanthropists to develop Boston’s definition of college, career, and life readiness. This definition articulates the city’s goal for its high school graduates and sets a common objective for a disparate range of system actors.
Unlike other cities’ and states’ definitions, which are often a collection of competencies and skills, Boston’s comes to life as a story. This flexible metaphor allows students and the adults that support them to access this definition to support planning for journeys both long-term and immediate.
