Andrew King
#1 for Cambridge School Committee

About Andrew King

I am grateful I grew up in Cambridge and attended Cambridge public schools. There, I made lifelong friends from different backgrounds. Building on the quality education we received, we learned to embrace difference, work together, and stand up against injustice. Cambridge schools launched me on a path of community advocacy, participatory education research, and working with marginalized families and neighborhoods. As a School Committee member, I will listen to the concerns of students, parents and educators and will work for quality education for all.
