Governor Baker Statement On The Passing Of Commissioner Mitchell Chester

Governor Baker Statement On The Passing Of Commissioner Mitchell Chester
BOSTON - Today, Governor Charlie Baker released the following statement regarding the passing of Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Mitchell Chester:

“On behalf of the entire administration, Lt. Governor Polito and I extend our deepest condolences to Commissioner Chester’s family, friends and colleagues at the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education during this difficult time. Commissioner Chester was a dedicated educator and accomplished public servant. His leadership improved the lives of thousands of the Commonwealth’s students and helped make our public school system a national leader.  He will be terribly missed by all.”

Early Education and Care Commissioner Tom Weber’s Statement on the Passing of Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Mitchell Chester


“On behalf of the Department of Early Education and Care, I offer our deepest sympathies, condolences, and prayers to Mitchell’s family, friends, and our colleagues at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.   For nearly a decade as commissioner, Mitchell Chester accomplished a difficult feat: he assumed leadership of a high-performing public education system and helped bring it to even greater, often world-leading heights.   Fundamental to that success – a success that he diligently credited to the Commonwealth’s students and educators – was Mitchell’s unshakeable commitment to student-centered policies and continuous improvement.   Mitchell’s special capacity to attend constantly and without compromise to those important fundamentals has been essential to the Commonwealth’s sustained progress in public education.   We have lost a true friend to public education, but not the example of his leadership, which points the way forward as we endeavor to extend Mitchell’s legacy of improved schools and lives.”
