Consalvo: Let’s Revive the Boston Compact

Boston City Council District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo

The following is an op-ed piece from City Councilor Rob Consalvo. 

Last Thursday, when I officially announced my candidacy for Mayor of Boston, I called for reviving the Boston Compact to bring back businesses, colleges and universities, unions and non-profit organizations as partners in our efforts to improve the Boston Public Schools.

The first Boston Compact was signed in 1982, back when the Boston public schools were facing a clear-cut crisis of confidence. Today, the schools are stronger and enrollment is growing. But the last Compact was signed in 2000 – 13 years ago. A lot of things have changed since then in Boston and in the world. Thirteen years ago, the city’s labor force was 20% smaller, jobs required less technical skills, and Mark Zuckerberg who invented Facebook was still in high school. 

The parties to the Compact were convened by the Boston Private Industry Council. The Compact partnered the city’s universities, businesses, unions, and other institutions and organizations with the school system. Compacts were signed in 1982, 1987, 1994, and 2000 and each set system-wide goals for improving test scores, college attendance rates, and other measures of educational progress.  read more
