Here's a brave and laudable change in policy: Boston public schools will begin airing its meetings and other programs about city schools on cable television. At long last.
That's part of a broader plan to better communicate to the public. The school system expects to spend at least $521,753 on communications next school year, 69 percent more than it spent this school year, according to a June 23 Boston Globe article by Tracy Jan.
The additional money, which includes private grants, will pay for cable television, the salaries of two additional staff members hired in April, and other initiatives.
