Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that Laval Wilson (Superintendent, Boston Public Schools) is frustrated because the Boston School Committee has twice rejected his proposal to consolidate Boston high schools. Jones' report includes interviews with School Committee members John Nucci, Joseph Casper and O'Bryant. Nucci says that Wilson is frustrated by a lack of support from some members of the Committee. Casper accuses the minority members of the School Committee of causing trouble for Wilson. O'Bryant resents Casper's accusations that the minority members of the Committee vote in a bloc. O'Bryant and Casper differ on how much parental participation should be encouraged by Wilson and the School Committee. Jones notes that some critics accuse the committee of focusing too much on the daily operations of the schools and not enough on educational policy. Jones notes that a spokesperson for Wilson says that Wilson has no intention of leaving his post. Jones' report includes footage from an interview with Michael McCormack (Boston City Council) and footage of a Boston School Committee meeting.
