A Profile of Racial Equity at Boston Public Schools

In Boston’s current education system, students of color, particularly our Black and Brown students, are disproportionately impacted by gaps in opportunity and outcomes. Race cannot continue to predict educational outcomes for our students in Boston.

To do this we must both attend to students’ individual backgrounds, communities, and strengths, and address the root causes of systemic oppression in our schools.
