Advocacy for Quality, Equity, and Transparency Within the Boston Public Schools System

Boston Chooses a New BPS Superintendent

May 2, 2019

On May 1, the Boston School Committee voted to offer the job of Superintendent of Schools to Dr. Brenda Cassillius of Minneapolis-St. Paul, MI. The vote was 5-2, with two Committee members casting their votes for Ms. Marie Izquierdo of the Miami-Dade School District. Dr. Cassillius immediately indicated her willingness to accept the job, pending final negotiations with the District. QUEST expressed that it is “cautiously optimistic” about the choice (QUEST press release).

QUEST (Quality Education for Every Student) is a volunteer grassroots organization of parents with children in Boston Public Schools. Founded in 2012, the group initially came together over concerns about the inequities of proposed changes to the BPS assignment system. We continue to ask how education policies and practices can help to dismantle past oppression, increase opportunity, and provide greater access to quality education for all.
