This one is not about Worcester, but...

Boston is up for the periodic review DESE does of school districts, and the Globe's coverage notes Worcester's review:
A 2017 review of Worcester revealed that many students didn’t have equal access to a high-quality education, or were not receiving adequate academic tutoring or services to tend to their social and emotional well-being.
It also found teachers were not consistently being evaluated with rigor, many school buildings were outdated and overcrowded because of insufficient funding and planning, and the School Committee was overburdening school administrators with too many information requests, noting members “should exercise a great deal more restraint in making motions that are not related to the critical task of improving the quality of teaching and learning.”
Worcester, of course, never did anything with the review, which can be downloaded here.
