Massachusetts is among a growing number of states considering legislation that would give parents the right to decide whether their twins (or triplets) should be placed in the same class at school, or whether they should be separated.

Parents and school officials often disagree on what is best for a child's individual development, and they also disagree on who should have the final say on the decision.
