Students fleeing Hurricane Maria devastation mean challenges for Massachusetts schools, study says

From the MassLive article:

An influx of Puerto Rican students into Massachusetts in the wake of Hurricane Maria is likely to place a particular burden on those school districts -- such as Holyoke and Springfield -- that are already facing educational challenges, according to a new study.

The arrivals -- 880 students fleeing Puerto Rico have enrolled in Massachusetts public schools since the hurricane hit, according to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education -- will increase pressure on the state Legislature to provide more money to these school districts. 

The Hampshire Gazette also covered the influx of Puerto Ricans into the commonwealth.
