Massachusetts is leading the nation in expanding learning time to close achievement and opportunity gaps. With more than 130 expanded-time schools across the Commonwealth, students from the Berkshires to Boston are gaining more time in science, arts, and sports with their expanded schedules. Based on their success, Governor Patrick is proposing to grow expanded learning time to all middle-grades schools the state’s neediest communities.
