Children’s Museum administrator named to School Committee

Mayor Martin J. Walsh on Monday appointed Jeri Robinson, vice president of early learning initiatives at the Boston Children’s Museum, to the School Committee. “Jeri Robinson is a longstanding member of Boston’s education community who knows the learning landscape, and will be an important voice at the table,” Walsh said in a statement. Robinson will replace Margaret McKenna, who resigned. Robinson started out as a prekindergarten teacher in 1971, the statement said. At the Children’s Museum, she developed the first-of-its-kind PlaySpace exhibit, designed to encourage creativity in children up to age 3, the mayor’s office said.
