WALEG: Roadmap Project talks progress, work to be done

Mary Jean Ryan, executive director of the Road Map Project, provided an update on the progress of the project and the work that needs to be done to bring greater equity in our state's education system. Ryan made the presentation to the Senate Early Learning & K-12 Education Committee on Wednesday (Jan. 15).

The Road Map Project is described as a "a community-wide effort aimed at improving education to drive dramatic improvement in student achievement from cradle to college and career in South King County and South Seattle. The project builds off of the belief that collective effort is necessary to make large-scale change and has created a common goal and shared vision in order to facilitate coordinated action, both inside and outside school."
