There is a lot happening in the Commonwealth on the Education front. There is a new and very aggressive push to expand the number of charter schools. Also, the Mayor of Boston has proposed a new assignment system that will roll charter schools into the current process.
I have a lot of thoughts about all of this but I’m still taking it all in. I will blog about these things more in the coming weeks.
I’m testifying on Oct. 13th in favor of keeping the cap on the number of charter schools. I will try and tweet out some of the highlights while I’m there. You can find me at @googiebaba.
I would rather poke my eyes out than hang out at the State House. But as my friend Karen over at BPS Nightmare always says, if we don’t fight for our children, who will?
Nobody. That’s who.
I’ll post my testimony here after I give it on Tuesday.
