Mayor Menino announces plans to advance BPS progress
In an address today to business leaders at the Chief Executives’ Club Luncheon, Mayor Thomas M. Menino emphasized the need to transform public education in Boston to ensure the city's long-term economic stability. Mayor Menino noted substantial progress in the schools since the early 1990s but emphasized the need for more dramatic improvement. He outlined a plan to accelerate progress by pursuing two reforms – creating a new form of in-district charter schools and introducing performance pay for educators in the Boston Public Schools.
