WGBH reports that the now former West Roxbury Education Complex has been re-opened several times this fall for events, such as for police physical-fitness training. BPS says there's a difference between occasional openings and keeping it open for an entire school year and besides, police are trained to deal with things like ceilings collapsing on their heads, unlike students.

Part of the discussion on the T worker and the noose post has basically centered on whether a noose is just a noose or a symbol of anti-black violence in this country.

On Monday, Nov. 19, students at Media Communications Technology High School in West Roxbury (it's one of the four small schools that now sit in what used to be West Roxbury High School) are holding a "walk-in" to discuss the implications of the Jena 6 case.

Instead of a "walk-out," where students shorten their education as a protest, we are hosting a "walk-in." Our students have opted to lengthen their education to raise awareness and create dialogue.

They certainly get the symbolism of the noose in American society:
