(NECN) - Tom Menino has served as Boston's mayor since 1994. He is stepping down, and Mayor-elect Marty Walsh is stepping up.

Latoyia Edwards sat down with the man who will lead Boston beginning January 6.

Mayor-elect Walsh discussed his views on education.

"We're going to have to do more to continue to turn schools around," said Walsh, who explained that the city had lost two schools to the state. "Also, our high school system. We put out a major reform of our high schools in Boston during our campaign, and I want to begin that process of reforming our high schools in September so that we can begin to bring confidence back into the schools.
