Understanding Massachusetts Commonwealth Charter Public Schools

Join Lina Musayev as she discusses charter public schools as an important part of Massachusetts’ public school system. As a community made up of over 74 charter public schools in the Commonwealth, they currently prepare over 43,000 students for the future with the belief that all kids should be given every opportunity to reach their full potential. There is still much confusion about what is a charter public school even though they have been around in MA for 26 years. This session will get you the facts, share what they are, how their models are unique, who they serve, what are the myths, and much more.
