Elect Courageous Leaders
We work to elect leaders who are deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for children and who put students at the forefront of education policies. We do this through the Stand for Children Massachusetts Independent Expenditure Political Action Committee, which is independent and non-partisan.
We look for candidates who believe in these tenets to building better public schools:
- Support outstanding teachers and leaders, by supporting policies regarding: evaluation system, implementation, principal empowerment, and professional development for our teaching workforce
- Commit to closing the achievement gap, by supporting policies regarding: third grade literacy and early literacy intervention; aligning graduation requirements with college and career readiness metrics
- Prioritize education funding, including funding for: teacher and principal development, accountability, high-poverty districts, and early childhood education
