Can We Talk about Equity, Access and Excellence: A Timely New Report on Phase One of BBDP

Posted: October 5, 2012 by Donna Bivens in Uncategorized


We hope you had a wonderful summer. We are excited to share with you Can We Talk about Equity, Access and Excellence: Connecting Our Past to Our Future, a report on the first phase of the Boston Busing/Desegregation Project.

This report is our attempt to synthesize all we heard and learned in this Phase of the Project which:

  •  raised awareness of the Project,
  • built a Learning Network and
  • began looking at the context for the crisis –its history, meaning and relevance for today–from the perspective of diverse communities.

There is a lot in the report but if you do not hear your voice, we strongly encourage you to talk back:  to share your agreements and disagreements and to add what’s missing in the spirit of truth-seeking and learning and change at the heart of this Project.

Also, please come to our first annual gathering on October 27 to move from what the learning of this report to next steps. Details to follow!
