This election season, Massachusetts voters may face a ballot question on whether or not to end the MCAS graduation requirement. In the lead up to November, we are releasing a series of blog posts with all the information you’ll need to help you decide how to cast your vote. We kicked off our series in February with an overview of the MCAS and a look at its history. Last month we took a closer look at the graduation requirement itself and what proponents and opponents of the ballot initiative have to say. This month we’re offering an analysis of the Thrive Act, a bill  currently under consideration in the Massachusetts legislature that would, in part, remove the MCAS graduation requirement.
