The New Opportunity to Lead

Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE) and Brightlines

Massachusetts' education system is high-performing when benchmarked against the rest of the country and even the world. However, the current system will not deliver the transformation needed to meet the demands of a new economy.

The report concludes that districts, schools and instruction must be transformed if students are to compete successfully in the global economy and Massachusetts is to remain a hub of innovation.

While the education system in Massachusetts might not be broken, it is certainly not equipped to meet the needs of the 21st century.
