We all know that money alone won’t fix our urban education systems, but we also know that without appropriate resources, we can’t make the significant changes in systems, practices, and opportunities that students need to be successful. At UPD, our consultants see this dynamic play out in schools and districts across the country. Elaine Budish, one of UPD’s Directors and the parent of a kindergartener in Providence Public Schools, recently authored an op-ed published in the Providence Journal calling for elected officials and the community to prioritize funding for our highest-needs students.
