“Ok has never been the bar.” Massachusetts has all the tools necessary to lead the nation in #EducatorDiversity. Call on @MA_Senate to pass legislation supporting educator diversity so that our students can succeed in school and beyond. #MAPoli#MAEdu
So far, Boston mayoral contenders Annissa Essaibi George and Michelle Wu have not agreed to participate in a single public forum solely to discuss K-12 education and the Boston Public Schools, @marcela_elisa wrote in @GlobeOpinion. trib.al/sypc9qo
🧵 The silence is deafening. Black and Brown children from @RoxburyPrepCS, from our city were subjected to racist attacks. And, yet, on this website and from city leaders - almost nothing. Where is the outcry? Where is the “allyship?” twitter.com/RosyGSpeers/st…
Good people can disagree around the politics of charters. But these are Boston kids and families. To not amplify and support @RoxburyPrepCS now is a failure of anyone in Boston who claims to support racial equity. RT if you agree.
I am humbled and honored to earn the Boston Globe’s endorsement. In this critical moment, we need leadership that has not only lived the inequities in our City, but will bring our communities together to do the hard work to eradicate them.
Good morning. A huge part of the so-called achievement gap isn’t the gap between Black and white children’s test scores, but the gap between adults' mindsets and the abilities and potential of Black children. @CenterBlackEd Those who know, know. #MindsetsMatterMost
I'm on now with @Latinos4Ed at the campaign kickoff for the Educator Diversity Act. @RepAlicePeisch and I filed this bill because increasing educator diversity is a crucial part of racial justice and anti-racism work that is so sorely needed in MA schools! #MAedu#mapoli
This is a huge step forward for equity in admissions to Boston’s Selective High Schools. Thanks to the working group that developed this recommendation. We look forward to the school committee’s approval in the best interests of these schools & ALL the Boston’s students #bospoli
