Madison Park is making progress

THIS WEEK the Globe told the story of those who are asking us to do even more to transform Madison Park Technical Vocational High School into a place of excellence — and we would certainly agree with these voices (“Overhaul urged at Madison Park,” Metro, June 17).

But let us also note the progress we have already made together: Today, Madison Park students learn on 1,000 iPads, laptops, and computers that we purchased in the last three years. Last spring we invested $370,000 to turn the building into the most technologically advanced school in the city. This year we provided more than $1.1 million to expand learning time and strengthen the industry partnerships that will connect classrooms to careers.
