As our next U.S. Senator, Mike Capuano will fight to:
1) Provide more funding for our schools
2) Roll back the failed policies of No Child Left Behind
3) Allocate adequate funding to higher education grant programs to increase opportunities for students to attend college
MTA endorsed Mike because he gets it. He was one of the only members of Congress to stand against the No Child Left Behind Act. He has seen the burden that falls on municipalities when school systems are underfunded from his time as Mayor of Somerville. He knew that No Child Left Behind would not deliver on its promise.
Scott Brown should take a closer look at Massachusetts educational system to see what No Child Left Behind and eight years of a Republican administration has really meant for our schools.
