A new paradigm of public education

Lane TSpringfield, MA - 01/12/17 - Students react to a vinegar and baking soda volcano in Zoe Pierce's sixth grade science class at the Impact School in Springfield. There was no finger pointing here two years ago when state education officials threatened to take over three chronically low-achieving middle schools. Administrators and teachers alike knew students were not being well served and the schools needed to change. But Springfield officials from the mayor to the superintendent to the teachers union president did not welcome receivership. Instead, working with state officials, they crafted a first-of-its-kind plan for a Massachusetts school system, spinning off the middle schools into what effectively is their own miniature school system. Now that effort, dubbed locally as the Springfield Empowerment Zone Partnership, is gaining attention from state leaders and local educators across the state as a fresh way to potentially turn around the most persistently failing schools.
