Here's a chance to send a group of Boston Public School students on a tour of Historically Black Colleges. You know where your $$ will go. A very worthwhile investment.

Testified at Boston School Committee meeting last night. Boston is a boom town and there is no excuse for cutting the public school budget. Watch my testimony here, starting at 1:19 - and all the brilliant students who spoke out before me. Boston folks: contact @MayorWalsh and let him know he needs to allocate more $$$ to our public schools if he really wants to see all kids thrive in this city. We have the greatest wealth gap in the country. No excuses.
