MA Bites The Dust On Reform
Aug 31, 12:00 AM
Used to be that Massachusetts was the epicenter of most of the innovations occurring in education. We had the best standards in the nation. The best student tests, best teacher tests, a standout accountability office, the most advanced charter approval process and one of the most knowledgeable charter office staffs. We had a progressive funding formula that ensures a level of equity in what gets spent on children. As of 2014, we will have whittled that list down to the best teacher test in the nation (if it survives) and a progressive funding formula.
