Celebrating 25 Years of Impact!

25 Years and Learning

Throughout 2022, Mass Insight will celebrate 25 years of working at all levels of the education system, from the classroom to the capitol. Mi25 is an occasion for us to celebrate a milestone anniversary and accelerate our work as a leader in advancing educational equity. 

Since our founding in 1997, Mass Insight has become a national organization that partners with states, districts, schools, and communities across the country to ensure that all students, from kindergarten to high school, have access to high-quality education. In 2021 alone, Mi positively impacted over 5 millions students in nearly 9,000 schools nationwide.



With a diverse line-up of events scheduled, from hosting discussions about the future of public education to honoring teachers across Massachusetts for the incredible work they do every day, we invite you to join us at one of our featured Mi25 events. Check back as more events are added!
