Tito Jackson slams BPS’ ‘Home Base’ assignment plan

Tito Jackson slams BPS’ ‘Home Base’ assignment plan

“In 2013, Boston Public Schools switched from assigning schools based on three city-wide zones to a system intended to give families options closer to their homes.

But that raised concerns people living in areas with fewer high-performing buildings would see their opportunities for placement in top-tier schools shrink, and school officials agreed to provide a yearly study of ‘changes in equitable access to quality seats for all students, as well as changes to academic performance and overall quality.’

Those studies were never delivered, [City Councilor Tito] Jackson said.”
