Midtown Oyster Bar

Massachusetts voters just voted against lifting the cap on the number of charter schools in the state. Rhode Island has debated similar issues. Those opposed to expansion of charter schools fear they will syphon money from public schools. Teachers’ unions also oppose charters, fearful of the loss of funds to public education and charter school teachers not affiliating with a teachers’ union. Those who favor charter schools see it as offering school choice, with schools often concentrating on specific areas.

Are you in favor of expanding the number of charter schools in Rhode Island?
