Submissions and Comments Policy

Submissions and Comments Policy

We encourage readers to participate in all aspects of this site, including commenting.
Comments that contribute to the understanding of education experiments and reforms, including personal experiences with schools and programs, are particularly welcome. Information that helps others understand education reform is also encouraged, as are opinions, editorials and other information related to Massachusetts schools.

All comments are moderated and must be approved by an editor. Learning Lab will make every effort to review comments in a timely manner and post them as quickly as possible.

Any comment or contribution that constitutes a threat or is vulgar or obscene will not be approved. Commenters are encouraged to engage in discussions, but personal or derogatory attacks on others and their opinions will not be approved. Comments will not be edited. Contributions will be lightly edited, but contributors will see all edits before publication.

We use the Disqus comments forum. You are encouraged to comment using your name or to log in through your Facebook or Twitter account. Comments by users providing their full name or who are logged in may be approved more quickly than those that do not.

Your name, email and IP address, and other information may be stored with your comment. We will not sell, trade or generally share this information with any third party. While we will make every reasonable effort to keep this information private, we may be compelled to disclose it by a court of law in order to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft, to enforce the terms of use or other agreements that govern your use of the website, to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or others, or to protect your vital interests.
