Boston is the birthplace of public education in America. But today, we’re a city where far too many kids do not get the education they deserve.
We can and must do better. It’s time for Bostonians to come together and work with our elected leaders to give EVERY child a world-class education.
We, the undersigned parents and community members of Boston, pledge to work with our leaders to Unify Boston by developing a plan to:
- Give every child access to an excellent public school in his or her neighborhood — whether it’s a district or a charter school.
- Make sure all kids can succeed in Boston — especially those who speak English as a second language and children with special needs.
- Ensure that our teachers reflect the diverse communities they serve.
