Meet the leaders who are disrupting systemic inequity in Central Falls, RI: an urban school district just one square mile wide serving over 90% students of color. Leaders from Central Falls' community and district are collaborating to flip the script on power and agency in student learning during the disruption of COVID. They are doing this through community-led learning hubs, transformative curriculum, and a vision for reinventing their educator pipeline.
