Leading the Nation is a statewide celebration in which Massachusetts public schools and local communities will showcase their students' academic and creative successes.
"The Leading the Nation campaign is scheduled for 2018 and coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Massachusetts Education Reform Act, which increased and stabilized state aid to districts, established common learning expectations statewide, and made it easier to see where schools were doing well and where changes might be needed. Massachusetts' recent successes reflect an enduring bipartisan commitment to those principles."
On April 5, 2018, the Leading the Nation event at the Massachusetts State House will feature three one-minute videos highlighting student success in public schools across the commonwealth.
