MDA Educator Conference
Since its founding in 1975, the METCO Directors' Association (MDA) has provided educational leadership in the areas of school desegregation, academic achievement for students of color, multicultural education, and parent empowerment.
The first MDA Conference was organized in 1984 in an effort to provide staff development and information for educators and community members who worked with African-American children in suburban school settings. The MDA continues its commitment to the cultural development and academic achievement of children of color. We start each conference with the premise that all children can learn, must learn and will learn.
