The Boston Globe Must Cover the Crisis at CPCS
newsletter-button_000.jpgThe most diverse college within the most diverse university in the Northeast, the UMass Boston College of Public and Community Service (CPCS), is in serious risk of destruction at the hands of its own Dean (supported by the UMass Boston Provost and Chancellor). For months, the CPCS community has tried to get serious coverage of this crisis in the Boston Globe, and has been repeatedly rebuffed. Now the CPCS community is demanding coverage, through this petition, after providing statistics demonstrating that the Boston Globe has an established pattern of seriously underreporting events at UMass Boston--a large public college--when compared to its generous coverage of large private colleges in the Boston area.

Checking the Ingredients of Private Health Insurance
feature54.gif
A potentially sickening, if not fatal, flaw in the Mass Health Plan is that private insurers are still involved. They have motive and corporate duty to provide as little service as possible, for as much cost as possible --- for starters.
