Quotes

UMass Police Chief Donald Baynard said: "Although we apologize for the inconvenience that these incidents caused for students, faculty, and staff, campus safety is always our highest priority. I commend my staff for their timely and thorough investigation that led to this arrest. I hope this will be a clear and resounding message that we take these types of actions very seriously and will aggressively investigate and pursue criminal charges when unfounded threats are made to the safety of the campus."
...that obstinacy and polarized rhetoric stood in the way of compromise and progress," Chang-Diaz said in a statement released shortly after 5 p.m. "I was genuinely encouraged that we'd reached a breakthrough a few days ago when the cap-lift's chief sponsor, Rep. Holmes, and I agreed on a solution that increased opportunities for kids in both charter and district schools."
...me, and that’s why I filed An Act to Further Narrow the Achievement Gap at the beginning of this legislative session," said Representative Holmes. "This agreement fulfills my commitment to lifting the cap on charter schools across the state, while also protecting district school students from the harm caused when funding of the reimbursement line item falls short. I’m proud to have worked with Senator Chang-Díaz to fight for all public school students and to achieve this important agreement. I hope it will provide a way forward for this legislation."
