Teachers and school administrators across the state are getting ready for the first day of school coming soon. In Boston, it's about two weeks away.

There are many challenges facing Boston Public Schools this year after last year when headlines persisted over racial incidents at the city's premier exam school, Boston Latin School, which caused the headmaster to resign.

This segment aired on August 22, 2016.
