Welcome to the New Education Matters!
newsletter has been keeping you informed on the progress and challenges in the Hartford Public School District for the past seven years. Providing a window into so many of Hartford’s reform efforts, we have largely been in the position of
to board of education and district decisions and commenting on the impact to student achievement. But, upon reflecting on the impact of this reporting, it’s time to do things differently. As we move in a new organizational direction, to be announced publicly at
our annual meeting on October 31st
is moving in a new direction as well.
The new format will deliver stories at multiple times and in multiple mediums aimed at proactively bringing you deeper into systemic change work, through stories of leadership and best practice, words of truth, narratives of hope, and invitations to participate. You’ll still get an email from us every two weeks, but now it will contain summary links to articles, videos, podcasts and posts, all meant to accelerate our efforts to directly impact student outcomes, with you right beside us.
Together, as real partners, we will reshape the future of education in Hartford. Let us know what you think of the new format below, and all of our new communications as you experience them! Send a note to Nyesha, our storyteller and communication lead, anytime at
Thanks for all you do for Hartford children and families, and for our great city.
