The Worcester Education Collaborative (WEC) and Worcester Regional Research Bureau are pleased to announce the upcoming release of their first joint report, The Urgency of Excellence: Considerations for the Next Superintendent of Schools in Worcester, Massachusetts. The report will be released at a community briefing and panel discussion on Wednesday, January 13, co-hosted by WEC and The Research Bureau, together with Clark University's Adam Institute for Urban Teaching and School Practice, Greater Worcester Community Foundation, and United Way of Central Massachusetts. The report and the panel will focus on the opportunities facing the Worcester Public Schools as they prepare for new leadership. Public education is critical to the success of the modern city. As the Worcester School Committee begins its 2016-2017 term with the challenge of appointing a new superintendent, the report and panel will review the critical needs of urban education and offer insights into best practices for moving forward.
