Massachusetts should be leading on education, but when it comes to early ed we’re falling behind. As a result, dedicated educators are innovating and finding ways to link families, teachers and school systems together more efficiently.

Kim Davenport is the Managing Director for Birth to 3rd Grade Alignment at Edward Street Child Services, she has over 25 years of experience in early education and nonprofit management and has dedicated her career to improving the education of Massachusetts children. Spend time talking to teachers on the ground, and you will see that we have the tools we need to create a much better system for our children, but, as Kim said to me, “The will and mind share is growing, but the dollars are not yet flowing.”
