Have questions about the MA ballot question #2? Should we raise the charter
school cap?

*New Leaders Council - Boston chapter* and *Ford Hall Forum* co-hosted an
excellent panel on this question and the video is now available:

Highly recommend watching this to help you make an educated decision on
whether to vote "yes" or "no".

A "yes" vote supports this proposal to authorize up to 12 new charter
schools or enrollment expansions in existing charter schools by the state
Board of Elementary and Secondary Education per year.

A "no" vote opposes this proposal to authorize up to 12 new charter schools
or enrollment expansions in existing charter schools, thereby maintaining
the current charter school cap.

I'm happy to chat with anyone about my thoughts on this. Please share!
