Creating Integrity in the Charter School Application Process and Examining Charter Schools

Today the Joint Committee on Education heard several bills that I filed that would strengthen the integrity of the charter school application proposal process and create a working group to examine a number of issues surrounding charter schools. Finance Chairperson Kathy Clancy and Chairperson Val Gilman of the Gloucester School Committee attended the hearing and provided their testimony in support of my bills.
