As a former Boston School Committee president and city councilor, and a current member of the panel overhauling the city’s nightmarish school assignment process, John Nucci is a decorated veteran of Boston’s public school battles. He believes the next few months pose the best opportunity in years to finally reconnect schools to their neighborhoods.
“We have to do something bold,” he said last week. “Moving a few lines here and there won’t cut it. The mayor is right that the goal has to be quality schools close to home.”
