At UMass, Boston!

UMass Boston

Dear Commons Community,

Yesterday was a travel day for me and arrived in Boston last evening. I am here for a visit at UMass, Boston, to evaluate an Ed.D/Ph.D program focusing on Leadership in Urban Schools.

I have not been to Boston in about 7-8 years and am happy to say that one of America’s great northeastern cities is looking good. I took my first cab ride in The Big Dig officially known as the Central Artery/Tunnel Project (CA/T) and it is a tremendous improvement over my recollections of traveling from Logan Airport to Boston’s central city. The Big Dig was quite controversial during its construction mainly because of cost overruns but it is a far better alternative than an above ground or elevated highway. For those of us who live in New York, think about what the Cross-Bronx Expressway would look like on Broadway or 42nd Street.

I am looking forward to my visit at UMass and meeting with students, faculty, and administrators..
