Kids Can't Wait

An extraordinary effort is under way to help high school students graduate with skills.
The Campaign Kids Can't Wait, The Campaign for the Class of 2008... and beyond, will build a diverse grassroots coalition consisting of school leaders, businesspeople, parents, and government to work together to identify and expand resources available to high school students who need them most. The goal is to deliver on the promise we have made to high school students, starting with the class of 2008: That all students across the state have access to effective extra academic programs in English and math and graduate with the skills they need.

We've Just Begun to Try; It's Not the Time to Delay
For decades, too many students in Massachusetts and across the country have graduated from high school without the skills they need to do well in college or in a job.
