Lowell Sun Editorial
May 14, 2012
The Lowell Sun writes that it's time to lift the cap on charter schools.
"The Patrick administration won our praise in 2010 when it lifted restrictions on charter-school expansion, but political pressure kept the reforms to a minimum. It is apparent now that limiting expansion to the lowest-performing school districts was a compromise for the moment, not a vision for the future. Patrick needs to reassert his commitment to charter schools and expand the options for our neediest children."
