Letter to Commissioner Riley (DESE)

In a letter to Jeffrey Riley, commissioner of elementary and secondary education, MTA President Merrie Najimy and MTA Vice President Max Page supported the recommendations of the Legislative Special Commission. They wrote, “Fully funded school libraries for students in every school are part of MTA’s vision for public education.” They added that the commission provided “valuable recommendations and a plan for implementation that will start to right the gross existing inequities and ensure that ALL Massachusetts students have access to the proven academic advantages that school libraries and librarians provide.”
