That’s what black people have done in Quincy,Avon, Holbrook, Foxboro, Bridgewater and Woburn over the past ~20 years. Cant get to every town.

different ethnicities have entered into different towns recently. Latinos have made big moves in Saugus, Hudson, Marlborough, Dedham.

Asians have moved into Acton Westfird an host of previously Lilly white metro west towns.

Foxboro as a town is 6% black, as are it a public schools. However ‘Foxboro Center’ the CDP is over 11% black.

Foxboro Regional Charter has 1714 students from K-12 and is 51.5% black, and I do not believe Brockton is in the district either.

And the thing about those estimates is that they’re really centered around mid-2017 because they’re 2015-2019 estimates. it’s likely all of these towns is blacker than that circa 2021. Based off the rate of change from 2000 when each of these towns was less than 4% black

I do believe Foxboro Regional takes Brockton kids, or at least they used to.

Correct

“The school currently enrolls almost 1,300 students from 20 neighboring communities that make up our district including Attleboro, Avon, Brockton, Canton, Easton, Foxborough, Mansfield, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Norton, Norwood, Plainville, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, West Bridgewater, and Wrentham.”

There's still quite a bit of crime in that area.

That brings up another interesting idea. Can someone make a map of what communities accept Metco Students?
