WGBH forum features Murphy School

The Richard Murphy K-8 School was featured in a recent town hall meeting about empowering educators to transform public education. Murphy Principal Mary Russo and teacher Harry Gilliam, Jr., participated in a panel discussion to describe the school's collaborative approach to teaching and learning. The forum was sponsored by the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future (NCTAF), MetLife Foundation, and WGBH. NCTAF President Tom Carroll said, “The Murphy School is a great example that many educators can learn from – in Boston and beyond.” The forum can be viewed online, including a WGBH-produced video about the Murphy's teamwork approach.
