BOSTON (CBS) – On Election Day, Massachusetts voters will decide whether or not to lift the cap on charter schools.
There are currently 78 charter schools operating in the state.
The new law would:
- Allow 12 new charters each year over the current limit
- State Board of Education would review applications for new charters
- Students are admitted by lotteries set by the charter schools
