As Gov. Charlie Baker takes office today, nearly 45,000 children sit on charter public school waiting lists – more than the number of children attending charters. Long a charter supporter, Gov.

We are eager to begin working with Gov. Baker to restart the conversation about improving public education and pursue reforms that will expand high quality educational opportunities for all Massachusetts schoolchildren.
