Phillips Academy alumnus Ai-jen Poo was recognized in Time Magazine for her work she has done to gain labor rights for domestic workers.
Monday, April 30, 2012
A Phillips Academy alumnus was recently named to Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. Ai-jen Poo, from the class of 1992, is being recognized for the labor advocacy work she has done on behalf of domestic workers—ie, nannies, maids, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers-- who have historically been excluded from most major labor laws. Dubbed the "nannies' Norma Rae" by the New York Times, her efforts have led to the founding of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the passage of the first-ever Domestic Workers Bill of Rights by both New York and California. Influenced by her cause, President Obama has expanded labor laws to protect 2.5 million home-care workers. You can find more information …

Come listen to PBS correspondent Ray Suarez at Phillips Academy's Cochran Chapel as he discusses the "browning of America."
Thursday, October 27, 2011
This release was provided by Phillips Academy Andover. By 2042, the United States will be a country with a “minority majority,” dramatically changing the way we view the average American. The story of the United States is one of continuously widening the definition of who is a “real American,” and many question whether our newest immigrants, predominantly from Spanish-speaking countries, will ever become fully integrated. As our demographics evolve, so will our schools, commerce, politics and workforce. Phillips Academy invites the community to an evening presentation by Ray Suarez, senior correspondent for "The PBS NewsHour," on the "browning of America," on Friday, Oct. 28 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The presentation and Q-and-A will take place …

A new drainage design may stop flooding at Rabbits Pond but funding for the project is still unknown.
A new drainage design may stop Rabbit Pond from overflowing but the pond owner, Phillips Academy, is still looking for funds to construct the new design features. A storm overflow and redesigned drainage system are the subject of an engineering study done in response to the one-hundred-year storm that caused flooding on adjacent properties by Rabbit Pond at Phillips Academy Andover earlier this year. The two-acre pond on the academy property overflowed as it quickly filled during the heavy rains and that overflow flooded parts of Morton Street and adjacent properties. The engineering firm, Nitsch Engineering at Lincoln Street, Boston, said that increased outlets for the pond's overflow might solve the problem. In their proposed design , …
