The Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) Program, established in 1966 and funded under the Racial Imbalance Act of Massachusetts, is a voluntary desegregation program formed through the cooperative efforts of urban and suburban parents and educators. The METCO Directors' Association (MDA), founded in 1975, provides educational leadership in the areas of school desegregation, academic achievement for students of color, multicultural education, and parent empowerment. The MDA membership is comprised of concerned professionals who serve as METCO Directors or Coordinators in more than thirty suburban communities in the metropolitan Boston area.
