Firing Parker may appease some for a while but it is meaningless unless the NCAA is dispanded. Colleges are running a minor league sports empire. It's high time we face reality that there in the NCA more »

you are spot on. please consider sending your comments into the Globe as a letter to the editor.

the full quote is "You didn't build that by yourself." Feel free to disagree with it, but the omission of the full quote is significant and tantamount to fabrication.

The BPS' viewing this ruling favorably is like a student claiming victory on a test which was not administered due to the teacher's absence. more »

"Her track record is exceptional." Defend Dr. Johnson if you wish, but let's not pretend that her track record is exceptional. Have we forgotten the plan for five zones, have we forgotten the late bus more »

Perhaps you are correct, but does that discredit the information? Romney seeks to profit from the indebtedness of students. Not admirable. more »

My white children can't participate in METCO, where is the "advantage" in that?

Let's replace Harmon and the editorial board with "young dynamos."

Massachusetts rank 1st in the nation and, if it were treated as an independent nation, would rank very high internationally. The US, however, ranks so low due to right-to-work states like AL, MS, and more »

See a bad teacher, blame not the union, blame the incompetent administrator who let's him stay on the job. Any "bad" teacher can be terminated. more »

Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. In education most teachers did not unionize for high wages (clearly) but for better educational conditions. Prior to unions, the BPS class size for hig more »
