Walsh plan would aid high schools

Mayoral candidate promotes proposal to ensure continued success for students

Mayoral candidate Martin J. Walsh rolled out an initiative Monday aimed at bolstering large district high schools in Boston, making clear that he is not ceding the issue of education to his opponent, John R. Connolly, who has made revamping the school system the cornerstone of his campaign.

Walsh’s proposal focuses on ways to prevent students from falling through the cracks at 10 of the city’s roughly three dozen high schools, many of which are beset by low graduation rates or lackluster standardized test scores.
