Boston School Committee approves controversial BPS budget
from Learning Lab
After weeks of protests and public hearings, the Boston School Committee voted 5-2 to pass a controversial budget proposal of just over $1 billion from Superintendent Tommy Chang for the 2017 fiscal year. Recently, Mayor Marty Walsh vowed to spare high schools from budget cuts after more than 1,000 BPS high school students walked out of their classes in protest of the proposed cuts. Walsh's move raised concerns about the ripple effect it would have on early childhood learning and special education students.
