BTU Mayoral Forum: Mark your calendars!

A Mayoral Candidate Forum will be hosted by the Boston Teachers Union (BTU) on September 11, 7 PM at 180 Mt. Vernon Street in Dorchester.  To date, the BTU has not made an endorsement in the race. The forum will be moderated by David Bernstein, a leading Massachusetts political analyst and journalist.

Boston, as well as public education, will transition into a new era with the election of a new mayor. The cornerstone of our democracy is public education, which serves all the children in the City of Boston schools. The BTU remains dedicated to students, families, the community, and ensuring that each child receives a well-rounded, quality education from teachers who are credentialed and highly-qualified. Specifics regarding the BTU Mayoral Forum will be forthcoming.
