Thanks to everyone who attended our online conversations about Brookline Schools the past two Sundays. A big thanks to our guests and to Meghna Chakrabarti for moderating both conversations.

On Sunday June 7th Brookline Educators Union president Jessica Wender Shubow was joined by other Brookline Educators.

On Sunday May 31st we had Brookline School Committee Members Suzanne Federspiel and David Pearlman. Both videos are available on Youtube:

The BPO is proud to endorse

Suzanne Federspiel
Andy Liu
Mariah Nobrega

for Brookline School Committee!

Please vote for these three amazing candidates on Tuesday June 9th.

Suzanne, Andy, & Mariah believe that:

  • Elementary schools must promote a comprehensive curriculum that integrates science and social studies with language arts and mathematics.
  • Educators must have the time, support, and freedom to do their best and most creative work with children.
  • We must work toward racial justice and equity by supporting all students and striving to eliminate system-wide structural racism.
  • We must have green schools that teach our children to be good stewards of the future.
  • At the district level, financial management must be based on long-term planning and clear priorities.
  • At the school level, educators, families, and administrators must work together to develop budgets that reflect each school community’s priorities.
