Save Our Schools

Save Our Public Schools, the ballot committee formed to oppose the charter school ballot question that would drain millions more in taxpayer money from Massachusetts public schools every year, released the following statement on April 7 in response to the passage of the state Senate’s charter school bill:

“While it attempts to fix some of the significant flaws in our charter school system, this bill would perpetuate the very serious problem in lifting the cap: the expansion of a separate and unequal education system.

“Commonwealth charter schools are taking hundreds of millions of dollars from our students and communities and putting these vital funds under the control of private entities that discourage parental involvement. The Commonwealth should not move to expand their reach.”
