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 partners with schools to ensures students receive a meaningful math education that is affirming, relevant, and prepares them for postsecondary.
EdVestors partners with teachers, school leaders, district administrators, and external collaborators to help improve the mathematics educational experiences and outcomes for students in Boston Public Schools.
We know that students’ experience with K-12 mathematics is a significant predictor of their postsecondary and career success. However, data shows that racially minoritized students experience lower levels of access and achievement compared to their non-minoritized peers. This indicates students experience school mathematics differently, resulting in differential preparation, especially for Black and Latinx students.
EdVestors envisions that:
- All BPS students, especially Black and Latina/o/x students, experience engaging and affirming mathematics teaching and learning environments;
- Students experience increased success in mathematics and develop strong identities as mathematics learners that prepares them for broad academic, career, and social opportunities; and,
- Students experience equitable access and success in advanced mathematics courses across the district.
