Boston’s mayoral candidates and city council candidates were busy campaigning across the city ahead of the Nov. 5 election.
This morning, more than 1,100 Boston students who live within a few blocks of each other boarded school buses and began long commutes to reach their classrooms in 67 different schools across our city. Together, they traveled more than 1,782 miles – the distance from Boston to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Boston school zones will be redrawn in December, based on recommendations from Mayor Thomas Menino’s external advisory committee on school choice in November. One of five proposals will change the present three-zone system for school placement in 2014-2015.
