Education in Jamaica Plain, MA
A look at the census breakdowns within various schools in the community of Jamaica Plain, and the test scores across schools in Boston, constrained by the same information. The Boston school system recently re-zoned their districts, and this shows the schools before that took effect early in 2014. It is possible that under these new school districts, classrooms will become more segregated, not less. The research here was presented as a part of a semester-long investigation about local inequality in education, key questions were: How are schools that fall within the "Circle of Promise" initiative placing on state mandated testing, and how do those numbers compare with the highest achieving schools in the district?
