Description : Abstract
Christy George reports that the Boston School Committee held an executive session to make a decision on the renewal of the contract of Laval Wilson (Superintendent, Boston Public Schools). George notes that several audience members addressed the Boston School Committee about Wilson's performance before they made their decision. George's report includes footage of Jim Hobby (South Boston resident), Minister Don Muhammad (Roxbury community leader), and Pedro Posado (Latino activist) addressing the members of the School Committee at a meeting. George reports that the Boston School Committee has offered Wilson a two-year contract with constant performance reviews and no perquisites. George adds that the contract does not allow Wilson much freedom to operate. George's report includes footage of Thomas O'Reilly (President, Boston School Committee) and Robert Cappucci (Boston School Committee) announcing the contract at a School Committee meeting. O'Reilly talks about the details of the contract. Cappucci expresses his non-support of Wilson. The report also features footage of School Committee members and Wilson at the meeting. Wilson speaks to the media about his new contract.
