Toward Racial Equity in Boston Public Schools: Increasing Access to Boston's Exam Schools (Downtown Progressives)

The end of the school year offers an opportune time to reflect on the state of Boston's public school system and how we can better deliver on the promise of quality education for all students.

Boston’s exam schools, the top schools in our city, have long been held out as the merit-based means of upward mobility for the children of Boston’s working class families. However, these schools, the top ones in our city, enroll far fewer Black and Latino students than Boston’s other public schools. This is especially true at Boston Latin School, the oldest public school in the country. Join us to discuss ways Boston can improve race and neighborhood diversity at its exam schools so that our city’s future leaders can learn with and from each other.

Speakers will include Matt Cregor, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, and Tanisha Sullivan, President of NAACP - Boston Branch.
