Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce Joins Forces with the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education to Focus on Education

(Boston) March 28, 2017 – The Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE) and the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce announced today that the Plymouth Chamber has signed on as an MBAE “Affiliate” signaling its commitment to driving education improvements that will ensure all students get the education they need to be successful in college and career.

Plymouth joins the MBAE network that also includes Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce, Springfield Business Leaders for Education, New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce, Concord Chamber of Commerce, Mass Technology Leadership Council, and TechNet.

“Our affiliation with the MBAE is a continuation of the efforts we have been making with our members, our local schools and our higher education partners in preparing students for the future,” said Kevin O’Reilly, Executive Director of the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce. “We look forward to working with the MBAE and its other Chamber of Commerce affiliates on the many workforce issue facing the Commonwealth.”

“We are pleased that the Plymouth Chamber is joining with us to defend and advance education measures that better prepare students for a competitive economy,” said MBAE Executive Director Linda Noonan. “Every student in every community needs an excellent education to be ready for the future and making that a reality is our number one priority.”

Groups that have joined are responding to their members’ concerns on education and the workforce expressed through their responses to a recent statewide employer survey. 72% of Massachusetts employers say the schools need major or moderate change. Employers believe that there is much room for improvement in preparing our youth for success in postsecondary education and the workforce. Deep inequities in education that leave far too many students on the economic sidelines and a widening skills gap that makes it difficult for employers to find qualified candidates to fill open positions, must be addressed.

Education is emerging as a key policy issue this year. The Massachusetts business community has played a significant and successful role over the past three decades in calling for improvements in education. With efforts underway to roll back education reforms that have made Massachusetts number one in the nation in student achievement and with a need to better prepare all young people for a competitive economy, business groups are joining with MBAE to have a greater impact on that debate.

MBAE is finalizing its legislative priorities and positions and looks forward to working with its Affiliates to be effective advocates in the years ahead.
