The Broad Center

We believe America's public education system can and should be an engine of excellence and equity. To make that a reality — across entire cities and states, not just at individual schools — we need more than great teachers and principals. It also takes extraordinary people serving in the management and leadership roles in our school systems to ensure that every school, every classroom and every child gets what they need to be successful. The Broad Center identifies talented individuals from inside and outside K-12 education — people who have the passion, knowledge and skills to ensure every central-office dollar and decision is focused on opening the doors to educational opportunity for all students and then supports them in their work in school systems, even long after they graduate from our programs. Our work will be done when every family in every community can send their child to a great public school that meets that student's every need. Until then, our team and our alumni network

whitePaper | November 13, 2019

The purpose of this eBook is to explore the intersection between science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, particularly computer science, and girls.

This eBook covers statistics for girls and minority students in STEM, the growing technology-dependent labor market, current initiatives and organizations encouraging STEM, literature on how to support these promising students, and resources.

Teachers today are being asked to think “outside of the box” in order to prepare their students for a career and a life that is largely unknown due to the warp speed changing needs and desires of society today.

Integrating SEL into Remote Learning

whitePaper | August 10, 2020

During periods of time when they can’t physically go to school, students might find it more difficult to (1) take care of themselves, (2) connect with each other, and (3) find sources of meaning and vitality—so these need to be the focus of online social-emotional learning. Students might find it more difficult to take care of themselves when they’ve lost their daily routines. They might get less exercise when they’re not walking or biking to school, or running around during PE. They might not be sleeping well due to altered schedules and added responsibilities at home.
