BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MCAS exam is a graduation requirement for public schools in Massachusetts, despite criticism from teachers and parents since it first started about 30 years ago. Now, there is talk of a moratorium on MCAS.
Those against MCAS have said the test should be paused for the next four years as schools struggle to reopen during the ongoing pandemic. Teachers' unions support this call.
State lawmakers will soon be asked to vote on what to do about the exam.
