As the Boston Public School District searches for its fifth superintendent in less than a decade, and the state mulls a possible takeover, we talk with two guests who support a different approach to addressing the inequities within BPS.

David Scharfenberg, staff writer for the Boston Globe Ideas section, a graduate of Boston Public Schools, and currently a Boston Public Schools parent, and Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, executive director of Lawyers for Civil Rights, join us to talk about how bringing a desegregation lawsuit against the district would work legally speaking, and why they think it would accomplish real, lasting change in the district.

This segment aired on March 29, 2022.
