Boston schools win Gates Foundation grant
$3m award aims to foster more collaboration
Boston will receive a $3.25 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to foster collaboration among the city’s school system, charter schools, and parochial schools, the foundation plans to announce Wednesday. Boston will be one of just seven US cities to receive a grant. The money will allow Boston to build upon a historic partnership launched last year to bolster the quality of education for all the city’s students, regardless of whether they attend school.
