End to experimental school project in Boston

  • Cite

James Rowe and Carmen Fields open the program. Rowe talks about the decision by the Board of Education to cancel funding to several experimental schools, thus ending the six-year experiment in Boston. Those affected are on Blue Hill Avenue in the Grove Hill area of Roxbury, and on Talbot Avenue in Dorchester.
