Boston 25 Gets Real: Equity in Education

BOSTON — Boston 25 News is committed to digging deeper into issues affecting our local community. 

This 30-minute special takes an in-depth look at the issue of equity in education in our local schools. 

Overall, the state is still slowly recovering from the pandemic, but many issues still remain.  New data shows hundreds of thousands of children are still missing from school rolls across the country. 

Incidents of violence continue to happen in Boston schools. Advocates say students of color and those with disabilities are at a disadvantage when it comes to admissions to the state’s vocational schools. 

Boston 25 News anchor Crystal Haynes talks with stakeholders to explore concerns and possible solutions for these issues. 

We also sit down one-on-one with the new Massachusetts Secretary of Education to discuss his plans for tackling some of the equity issues facing our schools and students.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates as more information becomes available.
