using students to the Edwards Middle School in Charlestown from Eastieis costing the school district more than $400,000 per year, and Councilor Lydia Edwards is leading a charge to reconsider that practice sooner rather than later – a move that could free up valuable space in the Town for Charlestown students.

In a letter from Edwards and Councilors AnnissaEssaibi George, Michelle Wu, Michael Flaherty and Council President Andrea Campbell, there is a call to end the practice of busing East Boston students to Charlestown’s Edwards Middle School – where almost 90 percent of the students are not from the Town.
