I decided that I will not give up the fight as the final decision lies with the elected Boston City Council to approve or reject the Mayor’s budget proposal.
As for where Tommy would go as of next year, the Boston School Department still has no answers. There was no accomodation for him last year, and that is why the classroom at the Agassiz was created this year.
I was quoted in an article in the Boston Bulletin this week. I hope you will give it a look. www.bulletinnewspapers.com
Thank you and to the people from Boston who read this, I encourage you to contact your four city councilors at large and your district city councilor and urge them to reject the budget proposal to be forwarded by Mayor Menino. The City of Boston currently has over $65 million dollars in reserves.
I ask this not only for my son, but for all of the special needs families that will be adversely effected by this proposal. If they can save libraries, why are they shuttering schools?
