Boston is facing a school safety crisis!
The 2023 City Councilor Election Must Focus on School Safety
40 % of the city's budget is designated for public education - 33 % of the city's budget goes to Boston Public Schools - $1.4 billion - 2/3 of parents are concerned about school safety
75% of parents support metal detectors and school police in schools - Doesn't justice demand that we provide safe schools for our students? Are city councilors listening to parents? - When it comes to BPS are taxpayers getting what they pay for?

It’s time to act and vote for city councilors who are listening to parents and are willing to support the necessary changes to make Boston schools the safe place our children and youth deserve

Boston S.O.S. (Safety of Our Schools) is a local community movement made up of parents, residents, clergy, and community leaders to bring awareness to the serious physical safety issues that are happening in Boston schools. There is the threat of guns in schools, increased assaultive behavior, and social media challenges that contribute to a school safety crisis and require a more comprehensive strategy of intervention and prevention to provide safe learning environments for our children and youth. Join us in making our voices heard.
