BPS’ Chang: Schools must Close Poverty, Privilege Gap

Boston Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang said the district needs to drastically reform the way it is “segregating” young kids on cultural, racial and linguistic lines.

“We start segregating your kids are young ages — at the fourth grade. We have to figure out how we stop doing that. We are tracking kids.”

Chang said BPS has to forge a new system that is personalized to children and closes the gap between poverty and privilege.
