Support the Thrive Act: Write the Joint Education Committee

It’s coming down to the wire, the end of this state legislative session at the end of June. You can raise your voice one more time for the Thrive Act before the session ends by sending a letter to the members of the Joint Committee on Education.

Massachusetts’ state takeover law, and the state’s misuse of the MCAS as a graduation requirement, are failing our students and disrupting their education. The Thrive Act would end the failed system of state takeovers of school districts, and replace it with a comprehensive support and improvement system that focuses on giving students and educators the tools and resources they need to succeed. The legislation would also support students by establishing a modified high school graduation requirement in which coursework would replace the MCAS test as the basis for showing student mastery of state standards. And, the legislation would create a commission to give our communities a voice in building a better assessment and accountability system.
