Paul Reville, former Massachusetts education secretary, spoke with Boston Public Radio on Thursday about Boston Public Schools' tentative reopening plan that would incorporate both in-person and remote learning. "This health crisis, coronavirus, is compouding the inequities that already exist in our broader societies and that show up in our schools," Reville said.

Reville is a professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, where he also runs the Education Redesign Lab. His latest book, co-authored with Elaine Weiss, is "Broader, Bolder, Better: How Schools and Communities Help Students Overcome the Disadvantages of Poverty."
