There is a call for major changes to public education in Massachusetts.

The state's largest educators' union is calling for the state to pay for personal protective equipment needed in classrooms.


This would include more funding, especially for low-income school districts and for students with disabilities.

In addition to coronavirus health and safety protocols, the Massachusetts Teachers Association is demanding funding to help change the school curriculum to counter institutional racism.

The Teachers Association also wants MCAS testing eliminated, saying it narrows the curriculum of schools.

Hear the MTA president discuss some of the concerns by watching the video of the story.
