Gwen Bass talks to Comcast Newsmakers about marginalized students.

By Christian Feuerstein 

Gwen Bass, director of the Teacher Leadership Programs at the Professional and Graduate Education program at Mount Holyoke College, recently appeared on Comcast Newsmakers.

She discussed how she became involved in engaging teachers, families and support professionals to improve school experiences and long-term outcomes for students who have been marginalized.

“I became aware of how systems push certain students out — students of color, students with certain challenges — and how schools are not set up to serve everybody,” she said.
