BoMag’s Best School Districts
Every year, Boston Magazine gathers a host of information from area schools and from the state department of education. After comparing things like test scores, long term improvement, how many AP classes they offer or whether kids can play freshman sports - they crunch the data and put out a ranking of the region’s 50 best school districts. Critics abound, but many of us devour the list. Touting it when we make the top ten - chiding it as flawed when we don’t. Whatever your thoughts - it does make a difference. Countless people over the years have no doubt used the magazine’s ranking to decide where to move, make a home and send their children to school. Boston Magazine senior editor Janelle Nanos edited the piece and worked with a statistician to compile the list. She joins us.
