There are many inequities in the Boston Public School System. Many Boston residents are unaware of this. Progressive West Roxbury/Roslindale will be hosting an event on April 9 to provide an opportunity to learn about these inequities. Progressive WRox/Roz has joined with NAACP-Boston, Lawyers for Civil Rights, JP Progressives, Downtown Progressives, Citizens for Public Schools, QUEST, and several other groups to form the Boston Coalition for Education Equity.
The Boston Coalition for Education Equity is concerned with persistent inequities that play out in numerous ways for Boston students, what policies other cities are using, and action steps to move forward. Coalition events are informative, provocative, important, heart-wrenching, and encouraging. Our forum will highlight three case studies:
- BPS Budgeting Hunger Games
- Testing Towards Destruction
- Exam School Equity
Held at Temple Hillel B’Nai Torah, 120 Corey St, West Roxbury, at 7:00pm on April 9
