The MCAS is promoted as the key component of the education reform, yet it is not directly linked to any specific mechanisms for improving education. When a school gets a very low average MCAS score, it does not automatically receive additional funds to reduce class sizes, hire better teachers, provide more books, or improve facilities. The state expects that the score itself will "whip the school into shape", but otherwise leaves the school adrift.
