Two Boston teachers win surprise Milken Awards

Yesterday teachers from two Boston public high schools attended school assemblies thinking they were there to meet the new Superintendent. Instead, they were called on stage to receive $25,000 Milken Family Foundation Educator Awards. Students and colleagues cheered as Anne Clark, an English teacher at the Boston Arts Academy, and Matthew Dugan, a Science teacher at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, accepted their prizes -- two of only 80 distinguished educators around the country receiving the award this year. The educators -- the ninth and tenth BPS Milken recipients -- were celebrated in local media, including the front page of the Boston Globe (photos courtesy of, the Boston Herald, New England Cable News, and other outlets.
