Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that the Boston School Committee voted eight to five in favor of renewing the contract of Dr. Laval Wilson (Superintendent, Boston Public Schools). Jones notes that some members are opposed to renewing Wilson's contract and made an effort to postpone the vote on his contract renewal. Jones' report includes footage from a Boston School Committee meeting. Peggy Davis-Mullen (Boston School Committee) proposes to postpone the vote on Wilson's contract. John O'Bryant (Boston School Committee) says that he supports the renewal of Wilson's contract. Daniel Burke (Boston School Committee) questions Wilson about the high drop-out rate in the Boston Public Schools. Wilson responds. Jones reports that Wilson has acknowledged the complaints of some critics by pledging to increase parental involvement in the schools and by pledging to improve the School Department's relations with unions.
