"Tonight’s historic vote marks a new day for every child in the City of Boston. A more predictable and equitable student assignment system that emphasizes quality and keeps our children close to home has been a long time coming for our city. Boston Public Schools have never been stronger – and now is the time to ensure our student assignment process reflects the great progress we’ve made. Graduation rates have never been higher, students are outperforming their peers in other urban districts, and more parents are choosing Boston Public Schools for their children each year. There will always be more work to be done to push all of our schools to be better, and tonight’s vote sets a path forward to make all our schools quality schools of choice."
