Youth Power Leads the Way...Again
Several thousand BPS students took to the streets chanting "BPS!" It was breathtaking. There hasn't been a rally this big on Boston Common in years. 

Students left school to protest a budget shortfall that would result in cuts to teachers' jobs, classes, and supplies.

They shared their frustrations, dreams, and demands for the future of their education.  

BSAC/YOB and BYOP's experienced organizers played key roles:

  • Organized students 
  • Helped lead the charge
  • Acted as MC's
  • Facilitated getting numerous students to testify at the State House during a hearings on funding equity and high stakes testing. 
This event got tremendous local and national press - here are just a few!
