The Citizen Commission on Academic Success for Boston Children was co-founded and chaired by Hubie Jones, who is also MAC’s founder. The Citizen Commission is a diverse group of educational experts who are deeply committed to the success of the Boston Public Schools.
The Commission was created to analyze the successes and ongoing challenges of BPS during the tenure of Superintendent Thomas Payzant and to develop a roadmap for transformative change to present to the incoming superintendent. MAC played a very activie role in the membership and staff of the Commission.
The report, Transforming the Boston Public Schools: A Roadmap for the New Superintendent, calls for a commitment to high standards and contains specific recommendations for action in the areas of literacy and math instruction, special education, English language learners, dropouts and high school reform, family and community engagement, hiring and retention of teachers, and the BPS-BTU contract.
