On Wednesday, Oct. 23, I had the opportunity to help WGBH in overseeing the Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) Leadership Summit in Boston.

The program is designed to close the achievement gap for high-needs children, and to ensure that all children enter kindergarten ready to succeed.
