Boston YEO Moves to Cap Charter School Count

August 1, 2016

This Wednesday, Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley will introduce a resolution to oppose an expansion of charter schools throughout Massachusetts. Because funding for public education in the state comes from the same source, a forthcoming ballot question that would lift the cap on charter schools would leave significantly less money available for state-run schools, along with “charter school accountability and transparency issues.”
