Four schools face state takeover after latest MCAS

Four underperforming schools, including two in Boston, are facing state takeovers, education officials announced Wednesday as they released the latest round of MCAS scores. But there was also some good news: Scores on 10th-grade exams have hit historic highs.

The takeovers would mark the first time state education officials have ever seized control of individual schools without putting an entire district into receivership. The move highlights the dire state of education in the four schools: Morgan Elementary in Holyoke; Parker Elementary in New Bedford; and Dever Elementary and Holland Elementary in Boston.
