Committed to collaboration for student success

MassPartners for Public Schools is a coalition of the statewide teacher, parent, school committee, principal, and superintendent organizations in Massachusetts. Founded in 1999, our organizations pledged to find common ground on issues that affect everyday life in schools. MassPartners advocates on behalf of the public school community with state and federal legislators and represents the interests and concerns of public schools to the state department of elementary and secondary education. We share a commitment to improving public schools, to educating all children to high standards, and to supporting accountability within the education workforce. MassPartners is governed by a Board of Directors, employs a part-time administrator, and periodically issues policy briefs and position papers.
