Two Massachusetts Education Partnership board members recently highlighted our organization’s efforts on the Opinion page of The Boston Globe. We include an excerpt below from “A Fresh Approach to Improving Student Outcomes” by Thomas Kochan and Barry Bluestone.
“More than 950,000 kids are going back to public schools across the Commonwealth. The majority of them will be in school districts that rank among the best in the nation and they will benefit from another year of quality education from some of the most dedicated teachers anywhere. For others, however, particularly in low income school districts, another year of school will leave them further and further behind their better-off peers. While many of these schools are working hard to close the schooling gap that will otherwise leave Massachusetts with even greater income and wealth inequality in the future, there is a new approach dedicated to making these schools outstanding as well.”
