Public Education at Stake With Mass. Voters to Decide on Pro-Charter School Measure
More on two ballot initiatives advocating the expansion of charter schools… both heavily funded by Wall Street and both based on the “failing public schools” myth. The only schools failing are those underfunded due to the unwillingness of legislators to provide the funds needed to help children raised in poverty.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has weighed in on the most expensive statewide ballot measure voters will face November 8—Massachusetts’ Question 2, which would lift the existing cap and allow for as many as 12 new charter schools per year.Referring to the financial industry’s backing of Question 2, the former presidential candidate said in a statement Tuesday, “Wall Street must not be allowed to hijack public education in Massachusetts.”
