LearnLaunch Supports Important Massachusetts Legislative Efforts:
Senator Jason Lewis and Representative Alice Peisch, co-chairs of the Joint Committee on Education have filed an important piece of legislation that LearnLaunch ardently supports. They have proposed the development of a legislative commission to study high-quality, technology-enabled teaching and learning practices and evaluate educator preparedness for such practices in Massachusetts schools since before March 2020, through school closures and as we enter school reopening. Specifically, the Commission will explore curriculum, student engagement, and innovative practices aimed at equitable outcomes. The Commission will host six statewide hearings to solicit input from educators, activists, and innovators before filing a report of findings and recommendations with the legislature. Membership of the Innovation Council is composed of three distinct stakeholder groups: state policy leaders, EdTech innovators, and statewide education advocates.
