MPDE's Mission                                                     

The Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education is a recruiting consortium of Massachusetts public school systems whose mission is to locate outstanding candidates of color for teaching, administrative and support positions in member schools. MPDE communities are exceptionally supportive of public education, making these school systems among the best in the Northeast. Member communities differ in many respects but each share:

                  A commitment to excellence in education

                  A desire to provide equal educational opportunities to all

                  A commitment to increase diversity among their staff

In addition, most of our member towns in metropolitan Boston are longstanding participants in METCO, a voluntary urban-suburban student transfer program for students of color. We at the Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education encourage you to learn more about obtaining employment opportunities through our organization. Openings are available in all academic areas and grade levels, and at all levels of experience and one contact will put you in touch for employment opportunities in all districts! If you believe it is important to make a positive change and work with the best in a supportive environment, we encourage you to submit your resume, or call a member school directly.

We invite other school system to join MPDE in this collaborative effort to increase diversity in Greater Boston Schools. If your commitment to enhancing diversity in your district is a high priority, you can obtain membership information by contacting any of the officers listed below.
