Letter: Charting a way forward for Mass. schools

We support the Promise Act, the only bill to fully enact the recommendations of the Foundation Budget Review Commission and provide more than $1 billion in new state aid, most of it to low-income districts. Twenty-five years of a test-and-punish, charter-and-takeover regime has failed our neediest students. We suggest trying a new approach — providing the funding our schools need and that our state constitution demands.
