New book reflects on a decade of BPS reform

A new book published by Harvard Education Press examines Boston as a case study for transforming city school systems. A Decade of Urban School Reform: Persistence and Progress in the Boston Public Schools is edited by S. Paul Reville and Celine Coggins from the Rennie Center for Education Research and Policy and features chapters by various authors about key aspects of BPS reform work during the tenure of former Superintendent Tom Payzant. Said Reville, "This research validates Boston’s strategic direction on education reform, but it also highlights key areas where reforms must go further and be equitably implemented at an accelerated pace. Both the successes of the past decade and Boston’s ongoing challenges offer critical ‘lessons-learned’ for others engaged in school reform."
