Oh it does not.
Look, the #StudentOpportunityAct has FOUR funding implications for FY21:
1. 1/7th move towards goal in health care.
Does that happen in Governor Baker's proposed budget?
2. 1/7th move towards goal in special education.
Does that happen in Governor Baker's proposed budget?
3. 1/7th move towards goal for English learners.
Does that happen in Governor Baker's proposed budget?
4. 1/7th move towards goal for low income students.
Does that happen in Governor Baker's proposed budget?
Thus does Governor Baker's budget keep a commitment to the #StudentOpportunityAct?

As an FYI:
The difference between Ch. 70 last year (FY20) and this year (FY21) is current projected to be $107.3M.

If the Governor's budget isn't more than that, we're at the same place as July.

aka: No SOA, nothing other than the lousy) inflation rate. #MAEdu
Ok, so from reading the articles that are coming out--which is all we have since the livestream isn't available--it appears that this is the ballgame.

Our kids are never going to get this year back.
you didn't meet those obligations, @MassGovernor. The pandemic funding was not SOA implementation. #MAEdu

New #MAEdu guidance on wind and brass instruments from DESE today.
As the mother of a brass player, this seems incredibly foolhardy to me. Image
...still no discussion around air exchange...
So like stick a bunch of kids in a room, have them blow air at each other from ten feet apart...and that’s fine?

ok, couple of things: first, I do want to share these, as it’s among the first attempts to comprehensively look at what has happened so far: theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
This is the project @AASAHQ is in on (that I suggested @MASchoolsK12 could share data with), as, nationally, there isn’t centralized data collection.
Let’s note that it would be great to find that schools aren’t super-spreaders (and, as has been noted elsewhere, there are places that have been safely running schools in other countries)

At this point, I have the beginnings of several blog posts and several unsent tweets responding to a lot of the nonsense around schools right now.
I keep reopening them, re-reading, getting overwhelmed with exhaustion, and closing them again.
There’s been a recent renewal of the “why won’t anyone think of the CHILDREN” line #onhere, as if somehow it has escaped the attention of local leadership of districts that we don’t have children in buildings and that has consequences. #ThanksWeKnewThat
I think folks need to be super super careful (and I would use stronger adverbial descriptors here if I spoke that way) when speaking about the children of others whose life and experience aren’t theirs (and I speak here from inside my own glass house, as it were).

The joint meeting of the #Worcester City Council Education subcommittee and #WorcSchools Cmte Finance and Operations isn't livestreaming on Facebook, but you can find the livestream on the @TweetWorcester site worcesterma.gov/video-on-deman…
The agenda (with substantial backup) is online here: worcesterschools.org/wp-content/upl… #WorcSchools
Oh, nice reminder of City Council purview there by the assistant clerk (aka the councilors can't make requests of the school department unless they do so through the Committee)
