Five years ago, my wife and I decided to put our son into Boston Public Schools. This was against everyone’s advice. But we found BPS to a warm, supportive environment for our children’s education.
Our kids have been consistently engaged and supported by hard working teachers. Today, I believe our choice to have our kids receive a public school education is under attack from politicians who underfund our schools to well heeled hedge fund managers determined to privatize education.
I want to chronicle what we lose when we agree to turn public schools into charters. This is our story.
