It seems the Massachusetts Office of Educational Quality and Accountability agree with advocates for increased school funding!
According to the front page story in today's Telegram and Gazette:
“The (state Educational Management Audit) Council is concerned that although the community meets its net school spending requirement, this does not provide enough resources for the school district,” EQA interim Executive Director John J. Aherne wrote...The council “encourages the City of Worcester to address the insufficiency of resources to meet its educational obligations"
You can find the full report from the EQA here.
(that's a double underscore in the address before the "1" if you're trying to type it in from the T&G)
