We were alone at the top on three of the four tests, and tied for first on the fourth. That’s amazing. In 2005, the last time the test was given, Mass students also were number one on all four tests, so this isn’t a fluke.
Our total state tax burden, as a percentage of income, is in the bottom half of the nation – yet we are still able to have such a public school system.
I wish our country’s bumper crop of wing nuts would stop yammering about awful public schools and come up to Mass and learn how to do it.
Hooray for our educators!
