“The ‘zone approach’ to ensuring there are quality schools is both powerful and unique in structure in K-12 education.”

“We are grateful for Empower’s purposeful work in convening leaders of zones together. Through Empower’s facilitated networking of zones, we can learn from leaders who have embraced the zone approach in the fight for equitable schools.”

– Colleen Curran and Matt Brunell, Co-Executive Directors, Springfield Empowerment Zone Partnership
