MCAS costs, Part II

We're in the two week countdown to MCAS here in Massachusetts, and those cardboard boxes will be rolling in any day. Just how much are we spending on them?

Massachusetts, it seems, does not send our big checks off to Texas. No, we keep ours closer to home in Dover, NH, home of Measured Progress. Don't let that ".org" confuse you; in 2005, Measured Progress began a five year, $118 million contract with the Commonwealth. That's a lot of teachers, or new books, or school nurses that we could have had instead.
