What does your school offer its students?
Boston students should be able to get a quality education in BPS no matter what school they attend. That idea is rapidly gaining support.

At a recent School Committee retreat, member Jeri Robinson had this to say:

“I always get nervous when I hear you talk about those 'hard choices' that school leaders are making because those hard choices often end up in things that our kids don't get that they need. … I feel that's part of our reasons that we have opportunity and achievement gaps. … One school deciding on a library, and another school deciding not to have a librarian, makes a big difference for those kids.”

How far is BPS from reaching the goal of offering a quality education at every school?

To find out, we need to know what the schools offer today. Unfortunately, there’s no publicly available list.

We think the best way to get an accurate picture of BPS schools is to ask parents, teachers, and students. Please help us by filling out this questionnaire. Besides yes/no questions, there’s room for comments, too.

Thanks for your help!
