Criticism of Boston’s only technical vocational high school, Madison Park, came rolling in well before the school year started-- a damning report recommending an impossibly massive overhaul hit earlier this summer, more than 60 teacher positions remained open until just before the start of the school year, and last week the school’s headmistress resigned after a student led walkout drew widespread public attention.

Some are suggesting the school shut down. Can Madison Park survive? What will make the difference? On Under the Radar this week, Callie Crossley spoke with Eileen de los Reyes, deputy superintendent of academics at Boston Public Schools; Louis Elisa, of the community group Friends of Madison Park; and Madison Park parent Jeanne Pemberton about the school and its future. Listen to the conversation above.
