When 2,000 Boston Public School students walked out of class in early March and converged on Boston Common to protest proposed cuts to the school budget, City Councilor Tito Jackson was marching right next to them.

The school committee approved those controversial cuts last week, but Jackson says he’s not backing down. He joined reporter Adam Reilly and WGBHNews.org Senior Editor Peter Kadzis to discuss the proposed budget, the extension of the BRA’s redevelopment powers, and whether or not he’d ever consider challenging Mayor Marty Walsh for his seat.
