Letter of Support for Boggs Ed




It has become widely known that the Boggs Educational Center's strength comes from our community support.  We are now looking to our multiple communities for help.  Would you be willing to write a letter in support of our efforts?  These may be used for authorizers or other potential partners.  A short template is included here, but please feel free to compose your own!  Feel free to ask others to do the same!  We appreciate you tremendously.  Please forward letters to Julia at [email protected]  Thanks!

Teachers Wanted!

The Boggs Educational Center is looking for classroom-based teachers who are committed to our mission to nurture creative, critical thinkers who contribute to the well-being of their communities.

If you are a certified elementary teacher and interested in helping to re-imagine education, we need you.

Notes from our November Community Conversation

Our fourth Community Conversation was held at Detroit Victory Outreach on Wabash and Selden.  The goal of these gatherings is to involve members of the Detroit neighborhoods, as well as nonlocal supporters, in discussions around education and what they would like to see in a community-based school.  Below are some notes taken by Julia.

Our focus question: How can the community contribute to an effective and positive urban school environment?
