STATEMENT ON CHARTER SCHOOL DECISION
SOMERVILLE - Tuesday, October 14, 2014 - Martha Coakley today issued the following statement on the news that no new charter schools were approved this year:
"Today's news that all new charter school proposals were rejected is disappointing, and I am calling on the Department of Education to reconsider the decision. Families and children in Brockton and Fitchburg deserved better. We shouldn't let a technicality get in the way of offering increased opportunities to our children in school districts across the state."
