Twenty five years ago, the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education led the state to a groundbreaking overhaul of public education. MBAE is poised to do it again.

Please join us at an event to launch The New Opportunity to Lead – a campaign to transform Massachusetts’s schools and secure the long-term economic well-being of the Commonwealth.  Hear from Sir Michael Barber and his colleagues at Brightlines about their analysis of the state’s education system and how we can build on our strong foundation by adopting proven innovations and initiatives that will prepare all students to be globally competitive.

MBAE will announce an education agenda that will simultaneously drive transformation in our schools, invigorate our nascent education technology sector, and ultimately enable all businesses in Massachusetts to thrive and grow for many decades to come.

Steve Koczela, MassINC Polling Group
will present the findings of an employer survey that shows the critical need for new strategies in education

Sir Michael Barber, Brightlines
will present the findings of their study and will make recommendations for driving transformation in our public school system

Henry Dinger, Chairman, MBAE
