This video features the perspectives of school leaders, teachers, and students from the Marshall Elementary School in Dorchester and Orchard Gardens K-8 School in Roxbury, which usedThompson Island this summer as an extension of their classrooms. The schools were part of a larger, citywide effort called the Boston Summer Learning Project, which included 1,433 students, 31 schools, and 15 community partners this summer. Launched by the Boston Opportunity Agenda in 2010, this initiative is now part of a national demonstration project sponsored by the Wallace Foundation.
