Massachusetts’s test scores are now the best in the nation. The scores first began to rise in the 1990s after the state enacted major reforms to its education system. How were state leaders able to pull this off?

On December 7, 2017, Fordham hosted a discussion with David Driscoll, the man behind many of the reforms and the author of a new book, Commitment and Common Sense: Leading Education Reform in Massachusetts.

Jay P. Greene reviewed Driscoll’s book for EdNext in “Uncommon Sense for Education Reformers.”
