What's at Stake

Massachusetts is the birthplace of public education in America. Since 1635, our Commonwealth has served as a national model for great public schools. But right now, 77,000 children in Massachusetts attend persistently failing schools where fewer than one-in-three students can read or do math on grade level. From Boston to Springfield, Holyoke to Worcester, far too many of our children are not getting the education they deserve.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can choose to take a stand for our kids. We can choose to be bold. We can choose to start a movement that spreads to every corner of the Commonwealth, until every child has access to an excellent school.
