Education Commissioner Discusses Decision To Order Takeover Of Four Schools

Nov 2, 2013

For the first time under a 2010 education reform law in Massachusetts the state is taking over four struggling schools.  The state will place into receivership two schools in Boston, one in New Bedford and the Morgan Community School—a K through 8th grade school—in Holyoke.   WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the Massachusetts Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Mitchell Chester about the action.
