Chester lashes back at critics - Sentinel & Enterprise

State education chief says Fitchburg, Brockton charter schools proposals were properly vetted

Our perspective on state's decision

Hello friends. .
Still reeling from the DESE decision. Thank you for your kind words of support. We are still looking at our options. We believe that Commissioner Chester's decision was political. He approved the Horace Mann proposals which are schools that are under the thumb of the district superintendent, union, and school committee. The Commonwealth Charter schools are autonomous and independent ..our application and Brockton.  Chester's actions show that he is not a proponent of Commonwealth Charters. This decision is the first time since 1996 that a Commonwealth Charter was not approved! So we are hoping for changes with Gov. Baker and Peyser, the new Secretary of Education. We also hope that in this election year candidates that support charter schools come forward to challenge the status quo.
