"For many years now, Emily Dexter is the only, I repeat, the only member of the School Committee who has sought me out at public meetings concerning education, seeking solutions to the CPS system of Sharecropper Education."
- Bob Moses, educator, founder of the Algebra Project
"Emily gets the big picture and the details. She's already changed the conversation about CPS for the better, concentrating both on the positives and where we can do better. With Emily on the Committee, we can cut through the fog and get kids more of what they need to succeed as CPS students and after they graduate.”
-Leslie Brunetta, former CRLS parent
"Emily is steadfast in her efforts to provide our educators and schools with the tools and resources needed to help every Cambridge student succeed in their educational journeys. Her voice, with its command of what the data and experiences of students tell us, is essential to the School Committee’s mandate to narrow the achievement gap in our schools and enrich the educational experience available to all of Cambridge’s children."
Melissa Ludtke, former King Open and CRLS parent
"Emily Dexter is a serious, substantive candidate. She combines expertise in the field with in-depth experience of the details of the inner-workings of Cambridge Public Schools. Emily has excellent judgment and a vision for how our schools can do better. She is a strong advocate for more resources in the classroom as opposed to the creeping expansion of resources at the Central Office level. Emily gets what is needed practically to improve student achievement which is often at odds w/the political discourse and rhetoric we usually hear. She has the courage to ask difficult questions and demand answers, as well as the analytical ability to understand the complexities of data put in front of her. Emily is a creative, practical problem-solver. We need Emily and more candidates like her!"
- Debbie & Abram Klein, former CRLS parents
