This summer the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee resoundingly supported a resolution to oppose Question 2 on the ballot. NO on 2 endorsers include Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Attorney General Maura Healey, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, 196 school committees, the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, the NAACP, the Massachusetts Teachers Association, the American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts and hundreds of elected leaders, civil rights, community and faith-based organizations.
Will you stand with them for No On 2? Click HERE to pledge to vote NO on 2.
As Mayor Marty Walsh said in a recent Boston Globe column: "This ballot question is not a referendum on charter schools. It is a deeply misguided proposal that is fundamentally hostile to the progress of school improvement, the financial health of municipalities, and the principle of local control. I urge everyone to join me on Nov. 8 in voting ‘no’ on Question 2. Then we can get to work — together — to improve all our schools."
