It is an example of what can happen when people of different backgrounds come together to study, work and live! The Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) is a program founded in Boston in 1966. Back then, it provided a better educational opportunity for 227 students in 7 school districts. Now 52 years later, it is serving 3,300 students in 37 districts. METCO recently got a new CEO, who is a METCO mom and happens to be a Latina from the Dominican Republic. On this edition of Centro, learn how this great program is helping our youth. WBZ’s Yadires Nova-Salcedo talks with METCO CEO Milly Arbaje-Thomas. Tune in!
