Community Groups Show Support For Innovation Schools


A Coalition of community organizations, business leaders, and educators have signed a letter to the New Bedford School Committee, urging them to support two innovation school proposals now before the Committee. 

During an afternoon news conference, several speakers outlined their support for the Esperanza and Renaissance Schools.

The coalition claims establishing the innovation schools will give the city a rare opportunity to empower teachers and create more pathways for students to acheive.

Members of the New Bedford Educators Association have raised questions about the innovation schools, and whether the plan will short-change those students and teachers who are not involved.

The School Committee will take a vote on innovation schools sometime in April.
