The Unfinished Agenda: Charting a Course for the Second Decade of Massachusetts Education Reform
Mass Insight Education (NJ1)
The first decade of education reform in Massachusetts focused on setting--for the first time--rigorous, statewide academic standards, establishing high-quality tests tied to those standards, and successfully implementing a graduation requirement staked to minimally acceptable skills. Substantial new state funding provided support for the goals of higher standards. It's now time to build on the accomplishments of that first decade. Massachusetts must set new goals and help schools continue to raise student achievement with a comprehensive package of targeted funding and new reforms. "New goals, new funding" and "new reforms" must be adopted as an integrated package, because (as the authors learned so clearly in the first decade) overall success depends on clarity and accomplishment in each of these areas. In this report, the Great Schools Campaign outlines its vision for the next generation of education reform in Massachusetts.
