David Driscoll Named NASBE Policy Leader of the Year

Recently retired Commissioner David P. Driscoll was honored for his more than four decades in education on Friday when he was named Policy Leader of the Year by the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE).


"David Driscoll has been the most forceful and effective advocate for the interests of children in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts over the past decade," said NASBE Executive Director Brenda Welburn. "His success stemmed from his ability to cross political lines and rally stakeholders and the public to support high academic standards and rigorous accountability for the ultimate benefit of students."
