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.
