Quotes

...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."
"The victims were walking on Olney Street when they were struck by Mora's Chevrolet Tahoe. Evidence suggests the sport-utility vehicle was going over the speed limit when it struck a parked car, jumped the curb, hit a fire hydrant, then collided with the victims. Morales was mortally injured and succumbed to her injuries at Boston Medical Center. Her mother, 26 and a resident of Dorchester, suffered life-threatening injuries but survived."
