Re. the bill that was supposedly NOT written by Walsh’s office… “According to the bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Alice Peisch, Walsh supplied the text and she filed it at his request. “This particular bill I filed at the request of the mayor of Boston, which is a common practice as a courtesy. I filed exactly what his office sent to me,” Peisch said.
“Quiet Push for Unified Enrollment”: Walsh’s proposed bill in the state house, silence at the School Committee, and the influence of the private Boston Compact… this covers it all.
Interesting to read this House Bill (H2876) being proposed by Mayor Walsh and Reps. Peisch, Hunt and Carvalho, up in hearings tomorrow morning. It includes an “opt out lottery” for charter schools and a geographical restriction to the charter schools, if the schools wants it. Precursors to Unified Enrollment?
QUEST parents QUESTion the wisdom of Unified Enrollment aka Enroll Boston… a monster that may rear its head soon.
QUEST asks Mayor to disavow Enroll Boston and to focus on equity and quality for all students.
Interview with new BTU President Jessica Tang, where Unified Enrollment is brought up. Thought this was a forbidden subject until after the election?!?
