Everyone in Pittsfield, Springfield and twelve other cities is passionate about getting every child to grade-level reading by the third grade. The National Civic League recognizes their commitment with this year’s All-America Cities award. We’re following these cities’ efforts and thinking about how to replicate results.
The Jessie B. Cox Trust collaborated with the Davis Foundation, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, the Kellogg Foundation and other funders in efforts to bolster the Springfield campaign.
