The Western Massachusetts Curriculum Resource Center, at the Hampshire Educational Collaborative in Northampton, provides curriculum resources that reflect the standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology. The Library makes resources available for educators, as well as parents, to borrow and provides a site where groups of teachers can spend time perusing materials. Selected classroom kits, student textbooks, teacher guides, videotapes, and other materials are available. Training for educators is scheduled by appointment. Formal release-time programs for district groups are also available. To arrange a visit contact Jan Folts, 413-586-4900x140, . To arrange training, contact Barbara Lamay, 413-586-4900x142,
The materials in the library were selected based on their appropriate correlation to the NCTM Standards, National Science Education Standards, as well as the Massachusetts Frameworks and the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System. Most of the materials in the library were developed through programs with NSF grant funding. These same materials are found at CESAME, TERC, and other PALMS regional libraries as well as here at the Western Masschusetts PALMS Curriculum Resource Lending Library. Selected curriculum resources in English Language Arts, Social Science, and Foreign Language are also available at the Center.

AUTONOMY AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN MASSACHUSETTS CHARTER SCHOOLS By Bill Rust "Disappointing" or "troubling" or "numbing" were typical public characterizations of the scores on the new standardized exams for public-school students in Massachusetts. Released in November, the results of the demanding Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests revealed that a majority of the state's 4th-, 8th-, and 10th-graders scored in the "failing" and "needs improvement" performance levels for math and science. The English scores were hardly better. Of the three grades tested, only 8th-graders had a majority of students statewide who scored in the "proficient" and "advanced" levels. Like other standardized tests across the nation, the MCAS (pronounced "M-cass") exams confirmed that schools and districts with high proportions of low-income students posted the lowest scores. At a December meeting of the Massachusetts Board of Education, John Silber, then chairman of the board, said that the MCAS scores reflected a "crisis in public education." Yet Silber and other education officials also stressed that the first annual MCAS exams were tangible proof of the state's commitment to high standards of academic achievement. Calling the tests a powerful diagnostic tool that can help students, schools, and districts, Massachusetts Education Commissioner David Driscoll said that the 1998 MCAS scores provided a "baseline" for analyzing trends and measuring progress in meeting the new academic standards.
