The Office of Opportunity and Achievement Gaps Speaker Series (OAG Speaker Series) focuses on issues pertinent to and pressing for “urban education” and the sound instruction of students who have been historically marginalized. The goal of the series is to serve as a window through which we can engage Boston Public Schools’ diverse stakeholders, brand Boston as a school district dedicated to progressive change, and begin a historic stride towards true equity and the elimination of opportunity and achievement gaps.
