The Citizens' Choice: Raising the Cap on Charter Schools

A Discussion on Massachusetts 2016 Ballot Question 2




Charter School Panel Discussion

WGBH and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate are proud to present The Citizens Choice: Raising the Cap on Charter Schools. Join us as we explore both sides of this issue – and attempt to answer the question, would raising the cap on charter schools affect Massachusetts for better or for worse? Hear a variety of experts discuss this initiative, and prepare yourself to make an informed decision when you head into the voting booth this fall. Jim Braude, host of WGBH’s Greater Boston will moderate.
