City Councilor Frank Baker proposes electing some members of Boston School Committee

Boston city councilor Frank Baker has proposed changing the way School Committee members are chosen so that some would be elected, rather than appointed by the mayor.

Under Baker’s plan, introduced Wednesday, three members of the board would be elected at large to four-year terms, and four members would be picked by the mayor. Baker said that electing some members would give residents a more direct say on school policy.
