Amicus Curiae Brief in Support of Hancock vs. Driscoll

Massachusetts 2020 and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, along with education, civil rights and child advocacy leaders, submitted an amicus curiae brief to the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts in support of the plaintiffs in the Hancock vs. Driscoll school financing case. In the brief, we argue that to meet its constitutional obligation to provide all children with the level of education to which they are entitled, the state must ensure adequate learning time for all students, especially those at risk of failing, by expanding the time public school children spend in productive learning environments.
