2024 Condition of Education in the Commonwealth

Omni Parker House Hotel, Boston


On January 30, 2024, we held our annual summit on the state of education in Massachusetts, bringing together education leaders, policymakers, and practitioners to talk about how we can rethink our education system and reimagine when, where, and how learning happens. The event featured a keynote address from Massachusetts Secretary of Education Patrick Tutwiler and a panel discussion with all three state education commissioners—Early Education and Care Commissioner Amy Kershaw, Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeffrey C. Riley, and Higher Education Commissioner Noe Ortega.

The event was part of our Condition of Education Week, which also included the release of our new Data DashboardData Story Action Guide, and Community Conversation.
