BOSTON – The Massachusetts Legislature next week is to consider more than a dozen education-related bills.
A higher-education advocacy day is Thursday, with a Friday public hearing on 16 bills in the Joint Committee on Education. The Fund Our Future campaign, a coalition of educators and parents, supports the PROMISE and CHERISH Acts – which together, advocate for $1.5 billion a year in additional funding for pre-K through 12th grades and higher ed. Gov. Charlie Baker’s education bill recommends less funding and distributing the money over seven years.
