Busing in Boston: Teaching the history of segregation, desegregation, and busing
Josue D. Sakata (firstname.lastname@example.org) is Assistant Director for History and Social Studies for Boston Public Schools and one of the creators of this resource.
This was an extremely contentious period in local history that reverberated nationally. To help students and others understand this what happened and why, the Boston Public Schools has created online resources for teaching about the history of segregation, desegregation and busing in Boston. This session will include a review of the history and discuss how that history is presented in Boston Public Schools today, including how the online resource was created and how it’s used with students.
