International Journal of Educational Reform, v2 n1 p27-35 Jan 1993
Massachusetts' public education system has a long history of excellence and high regard. Recently, a declining economy, changed demographics, and a conservative government have placed the commonwealth's schools in crisis. This article describes recent state educational reforms, particularly funding and programmatic initiatives, highlighting 1985 omnibus school improvement legislation, the current financial crisis, and tax support problems.
