IDEAS: Initiatives for Developing Equity & Achievement for Students

IDEAS, a program of M.A.S.S., is the premier provider of anti-bias, anti-racist educational programs exclusively for PK-12 schools and districts. 

For more than 30 years, IDEAS has worked with educators across the Commonwealth to help create culturally proficient classrooms and schools that honor the individuality of students, families, and staff of all racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. Through our graduate courses, workshops, seminars, coaching, strategic planning, conferences, and other programs and services, we support schools and educators in developing practices to dismantle systems of oppression and ensure that all students receive the proper support and resources to succeed academically and thrive socially and emotionally.

Wherever your organization is in its journey toward true equity, IDEAS can support you!

Acknowledging Tribal Land

We acknowledge the indigenous people who first occupied all of what is now called North & South America. Some still live on their original land, some were relocated, some were enslaved across the ocean, and many, if not all, were victims of genocide.
