Greater Egleston and Boston Day and Evening Academy are two alternative high schools in BPS. They are for students who have had issues getting to graduation and need an alternative path.
Boston Schools administration and Superintendent Chang are not allowing students to register at Greater Egleston High School. Even kids who are two credits away from graduating high school are not being allowed to register at Greater Egleston. Students are being discouraged from registering at Boston Day and Evening. A high school that allows kids to go to class in the evening.
So while Marty Walsh has said that they aren't closing schools, he and his school administration are pulling shady shit like this. (It is shady because it is public policy not reviewed by the school committee and not disclosed to the public. And it's shady because low enrollment could be used as a pretense for closing the schools.)
The students and the teachers at these two high schools have not been told that their school are being shut down. No one has any information. Not the teachers, not the students, not the parents, not the school committee, not the residents of Boston.
Here is a story in the Christian Science Monitor about Boston Day and Evening.
