Mayor Martin J. Walsh today issued the following statement:  

"As Mayor, I will continue to strongly support Boston Latin School's high standards of excellence and rigor, and the record of achievement that benefits the entire city. More importantly, I will never take steps that diminish that level of excellence, or put it at risk. I am committed to the goals of the BLS student, educator and alumni community, not only in maintaining the tradition of excellence, but also in ensuring the culture at BLS is one where every student feels safe from discrimination."
