The middle of a pandemic, when students and teachers are still getting used to doing things online, is no time to talk about what could be a fundamental restructuring of BPS, several city councilors say. The Dorchester Reporter has more.
BPS is deciding to restructure the exam school process with a new test, of which there is no information provided for prospective students. How is this fundamentally different, given that exam schools can be life-changing for BPS students (as previously said by several of these city councilors)?
RFPs were due mid-March for a new vendor, and we've heard nothing from BPS yet. Students need information fast and deserve better - particularly lower-income students, who have less stable backgrounds (especially now) and need more time to focus on the material they need to learn to succeed.
What does COVID19 have to do with measures trying to improve public schools? This is a stall tactic.
