The Dorchester Youth Collaborative is an institution in the city. It’s a shame that they’re closing, another victim of the pandemic. They’ve saved many young lives over the years.
You wouldn’t think a story on cosmetology at a Boston high school would be very important in the grand scheme of things. Hairdressing classes? But it’s a way to engage students and put them on a carer track for something that has meaning for them. The problem, as Meg Irons points out, is that Madison Park High seems to only be going through the motions. Rhode Island has the right idea. Include business training, budgets and entrepreneurship in the cosmetology track. Give kids the tools they need to do well in the future, don’t just keep them placated for four years in the present.
