Featured Learning Hero: Maya Martin Cadogan

Maya Martin Cadogan, the founder and executive director of PAVE, is a firm believer in community-led change. She helps connect, inform, and empower parent leaders, to give families in DC a voice and choice in the vision for their children’s education. Maya and her team help shift the dynamic so that communities and parents are partners in creating great schools, and a system of education  is created with children and families, not for them. Maya’s work in transformative family engagement is why she is our newest Featured Learning Hero.
