NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Students will get a full two weeks off for Christmas at the end of the year — but they'll have to make the extra two days off up elsewhere.   The School Committee earlier this month approved a 2019-20 calendar that schedules a holiday vacation that runs from Dec. 23, 2019, to Jan. 3, 2020.    The extra days are a result of how the Christmas and New Year's Day holidays fall in the middle of the week.    "We had two versions of the calendar, as is the practice in North Adams, presented to the North Adams Teachers Association, and we had a vote and this calendar was overwhelmingly approved," said Superintendent Barbara

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When author and educator Ty Allen Jackson asked the audience at a talk on racism how many of them believed Colin Kaepernick was disrespecting the flag by kneeling during the national anthem, not a single hand in the Mount Greylock Regional School auditorium went up.

"OK, thing's over, nice to meet you," Jackson joked as he pretended to exit the stage, his work there done.

The audience laughed — and laughed later when Jackson said the mostly white community members who had come to see his talk appeared to be "woke." But even in this progressive little town in the corner of a progressive little state, there's plenty of work to

Neil Clarke of the MTA outlined action steps to rally support for the bills. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When the school gymnasium is full of excitement and noise for a rally, some children don't respond well.   They cover their heads and cry. But they might not if they had a paraprofessional with them.   A couple of years ago, the city of Pittsfield cut more than 30 paraprofessional positions from the school system's budget. Parent Starr Williams on Thursday asked that people envision each one of those paraprofessionals as being one child covering their heads and crying.   Williams is a Berkshire Community College student studying social work and will graduate in
