WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When author and educator Ty Allen Jackson asked the audience at a talk on racism how many of them believed Colin Kaepernick was disrespecting the flag by kneeling during the national anthem, not a single hand in the Mount Greylock Regional School auditorium went up.

Neil Clarke of the MTA outlined action steps to rally support for the bills. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When the school gymnasium is full of excitement and noise for a rally, some children don't respond well.   They cover their heads and cry. But they might not if they had a paraprofessional with them.   A couple of years ago, the city of Pittsfield cut more than 30 paraprofessional positions from the school system's budget. Parent Starr Williams on Thursday asked that people envision each one of those paraprofessionals as being one child covering their heads and crying.   Williams is a Berkshire Community College student studying social work and will graduate in
