The Boston Herald and the Worcester Telegram recently wrote editorials in support of legislation to lift the cap on charter public schools.
The Herald calls the bill that would eliminate caps in the bottom 10 percent of underperforming districts a "cheap and easy call" for Governor Patrick.
The Telegram writes, "Charter schools in Massachusetts were born with the Education Reform Act of 1993. It is now 2013. The last 20 years offer abundant evidence that charter schools are a viable and legitimate choice. The Legislature should eliminate all caps and spending limits for charters, and give the people of Massachusetts truly unfettered choice in how their own public education dollars are spent."
