Stronger Public Education

Campaign with the Labor Party to put a strong public education question on your district ballot this spring and to win a big "yes" vote this fall:

"Shall the Representative/Senator from this District support legislation that

  • equitably invests state funds in local public schools for quality education;
  • reduces class size;
  • excludes use of voucher programs which siphon funds from public education;
  • bars for-profit schools from public funding;
  • suspends the MCAS test as the criterion for promotion or graduation; and
  • establishes an authentic and fair assessment system of educational progress for our students and their schools?"

The Labor Party will run Public Education campaigns in the following districts:

  • 28th Middlesex (Cambridge)-Jon King 617-864-0842
  • 30th Middlesex (Somerville)-Bill Bumpus 617-625-9070
  • 5th Hampden (Holyoke)-Preston Smith 413-538-2151
  • 10th Suffolk (W. Roxbury/Brookline)-Seamus Whelan 617-469-8734
  • 12th & 13th Bristol (New Bedford) Ben Gibarg 508-999-6839
