Interview with Kathy Stapleton

What about kids who did boycott? What, what did they do? What happened to them?


Well, most of them I would think, you know, they boycotted the school. I mean the children and families that I knew that had the means and the money would leave the system and go to public, I mean, public schools in other cities. A lot of families moved right out of South Boston, out of Boston to get into better public schools. And, the people who could afford to, sent their children to private schools or parochial schools. And, um, some I, I would guess a lot of people just dropped out of the system completely.
