School dispute sparks : board shouting match Tempers rise over Hyde Park parents' claims By Joe Ferson Contributing Reporter A shouting match between two members of the Boston School Committee broke out last night when John Grady called Gerald Anderson a liar and a racist during a discussion about a controversy at Hyde Park High School. The shouting concerned recent allegations by black parents that the school's headmaster. Michael A. Donato, has been an ineffective leader and has tolerated a racially hostile climate. Grady (Roslindale-Hyde Park) accused Anderson (Dorchester-Mattapan) of harassing Donato because the headmaster is white. "You're the racist," Grady said to Anderson at one point. "That's the problem, isn't it? Donato is white, and you want him out." Anderson, one of four black School Committee members, represents the predominantly black sections of Dorchester and Matta-pan; most students from there attend Hyde Park High School. Grady, who is white, represents the district where the high school is situated. Superintendent Laval S. Wilson is investigating the allegations, but Grady accused Anderson of conducting a public trial in the media. Grady also said Donato was not being accorded the rights of due process. Last week, a published report concerning Hyde Park High School quoted staff members' concerns that Donato overlooks racial incidents. The report said that one parent had accused Donato of ignoring an exchange between students in which a racial slur was used against her son. Anderson shouted his response across to Grady, "I don't own a newspaper, and I'm not responsible that over 60 people called my office about this particular school that has the highest transfer rate, the highest dropout rate in the city." Anderson said his concern was heightened after he visited the school and found Donato absent. He also said he has received reports of armed robbery and drugs at the school. Anderson pointed to Grady and noted, "I didn't make this a part of the agenda, you did." Grady shouted his response. ."You lied to me, Mr. Anderson." 'Grady said Anderson had assured him that he would not interfere with the investigation. The School Stymied home ire at obstacles By Peter S. Canellos Contributing Reporter More than 100 members of the Home Buyers' Union came to Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Dorchester last night to seek an- swers to one question: Why can't they buy homes when they already pay more in rent than they would in mortgage payments? They were mainly disappointed with the answers they got from Edward Calnan of the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency and Joseph Flatley, administrator of the state's Homeownershlp Opportunity Program (HOP). Calnan explained that the obstacles to home ownership under HOP - a 5 percent down payment and a requirement that buyers pay no more than 28 percent of their salary to meet interest payments - are necessary to secure a high rating for the bonds through which the program is funded. "The investors dictate and those are their requirements," said Calnan. "The investors really scrutinize us to make sure we look like a good investment." Calnan did bring some good news: A $2.5 million program unveiled Monday will provide low-Interest loans to cover closing costs for HOP buyers. He also hinted that a program to be announced later this week would allow buyers to put up only half the required down payment, as long as a friend or relative can cover the other half. For those at the meeting, there was little good news from Flatley. "We have money," Flatley said. "We don't have projects to fund. We don't build the housing. Last year we had money looking One of 4 Deer Island One of four inmates who escaped Sunday night from Deer Island House of Correction was captured early yesterday morning in Dorchester. Robert E. Williams, 23, of Roxbury, was taken into custody as he tried to escape through the window of a friend's apartment Committee president, John Nucci, quickly called a recess. But Grady and Anderson continued the exchange, moving to:, ward each other until they were separated by only a few inches! " Grady expanded on his remarks outside the hall after the .exchange. "I think he is a racist," he said.' "They raised the issue about' black kids being unfairly treated and for him to put that stuff in the media . . . especially with all the procedures that exist to Investigate charges of that kind." Anderson, in a separate discussion outside the chambers, said, "I asked the superintendent to investigate the charges that parents ' brought to my attention. It's not a ; question of racism. It's about the lack of performance on the part of the headmaster, a lack of vision, , that hurts the students." Last week, Anderson said Don-" ato had received an "unsatisfac-, tory" evaluation regarding his; professional demeanor and staff development. ' Nucci said after the exchange, . "The superintendent has indicated he's looking into the matter, and there's no need for charges and countercharges to be made in 1 public. We should as soon as possible conduct an investigation on an administrative basis. That's the way lt should be done." Wilson also said that an investigation was under way concerning Donato. Some longtime school observers say the Anderson-Grady dispute could put Wilson in a dilemma. In his uphill battle to win re newal of his contract last week; Wilson needed - and received A the support of both men. '. ',c. But before voting for Wilson Anderson made it clear that he, wanted Wilson to investigate Don-ato's leadership at Hyde Park High School. On the other hand, Grady has been a longtime supporter of Don--ato. Grady also expressed anger, when he learned that Wilson and Anderson visited the high school several weeks ago. Grady said he ehmilH Viavp hppn nntifipH ahnnt the visit because the high school is in his district. . . l..a In another matter, the School Committee approved without objection the appointment of School Committee member Juanita Wade (Roxbury) to sit on Mayor Flynn's school reform panel. buyers vent to ownership for projects. We put aside $5 million and found only $4 million worth of projects." Flatley said HOP, which provides low-interest mortgages to moderate-income buyers, depends on local governments to stimulate : development. He blamed neighborhood opposition for the dearth of low-income housing projects in Boston, and urged members of the union to bring their complaints to the city of Boston. When union members, after; voicing their frustrations, demanded names of people to contact, Flatley suggested Lisa Chap-nick, director of the Public Factli-; : ties Department, and Pat McGui-gan, who handles housing for the city. After the meeting, union co-chairwoman Diana Strother ex-' pressed annoyance with what she saw as Flatley passing the buck. "I really find It hard to be-' lieve." Strother said. "I know they didn't spend all their money but I believe the land is there and there are people willing to build. To find out the real truth we need the de-1 velopers here as well as him." '.?;'' Flatley said, "We can't go In to the Legislature and argue for more money if we can't point to the projects we want to spend it on," he said. Union members expressed frustration. "Unless someone dies in my family, I'm not going to be able to come up with enough money to buy a house," announced one member of the audience. "I'm buying a house every week," said Anna Young of Mission Hill. "Only it's someone else's house." escapees is caug hi on Adams Street, according to State Police Capt. David Mattioli. Williams, who was serving a six-year sentence for assault and battery, faces additional charges of escape and Is being held in maximum security at Deer Island,, according to Boston Penal Commissioner ftobert Walsh.
