How will you vote on Question 2?
Question 2 would authorize the approval of up to 12 new charter schools or enrollment expansions in existing charter schools by the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education per year. Proponents say this would provide more educational opportunities open to all families, while opponents say it would drain public funds while benefiting only a small number of students.
Come and hear from our panel of experts including:
- Barbara Madeloni, president of the Massachusetts Teachers Association
- William Diehl, executive director of Collaborative for Educational Services
- Marc Kenen, executive director of Massachusetts Charter School Association
- Julia Mejia, parent at Brooke Charter Schools, Boston
Come prepared to ask questions, air concerns and leave ready to make an educated vote.
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
