Annual Report, Massachusetts Education Reform Review Commission - The Massachusetts Education Reform Act (MERA), passed in 1993, is a far-reaching statute designed to provide equity in the education opportunities afforded to all K-12 students in the Commonwealth and to improve student achievement by dealing systemically with all of educationís complexities. Rather than the piecemeal approaches of prior reform efforts, this is a major attempt to change all aspects of K-12 education, from what happens in the classroom to how schools are financed -- all with a keen focus on student learning as the bottom line. This report examines education reform progress throughout the state, whatís working and whatís not working, and offers conclusions and recommendations.
