Description

Students from advanced fourth and fifth grade classes at the M.J. Tobin School in Roxbury shared their concerns about busing. They were afraid that Phase II of forced busing would end advanced classes and this would academically hold back from reaching their potential. This image is from the cover the fifth grade class's book of letters.
