What We Do
We spotlight and seed school-based efforts with potential for system change through the School on the Move Prize and the Racial Equity Seed Fund and spread impact through BPS Arts Expansion, Zeroing in on Math, and Career Pathways.
Zeroing in on Math
Zeroing in on Math Initiative centers developing and sustaining identity-affirming and relevant educational opportunities for Boston Public School students in order to support their success in college and career.
EdVestors partners with teachers, school leaders, district administrators, and external collaborators to help improve the mathematics educational experiences and outcomes for all students in Boston Public Schools.
Students’ experience with K-12 mathematics is a significant predictor of their postsecondary and career success. Current data show that students from marginalized communities, including and not limited to our Black, Latinx, multilingual, and LGBTQIA+ communities, are receiving an inadequate math education.
EdVestors envisions that:
- All BPS students, especially those who identify as being from marginalized communities, experience engaging and affirming mathematics learning environments;
- All BPS students are prepared for broad academic and career opportunities by experiencing increased success in mathematics and developing strong identities as mathematics learners; and
- All BPS students experience equitable access to opportunities to engage in advanced mathematics courses across the district.
