Massachusetts can take pride in being one of a handful of states with full voting rights for a student on the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (Board) and the only state where the student Board member is elected by his/her peers. Mass. General Laws Chapter 15, Section 1E provides for voting student representation on the Board through a state Student Advisory Council. The Student Advisory Council has a distinguished history in representing secondary school students in the Commonwealth, and provides opportunities for students to learn and grow while demonstrating their individual leadership qualities.
