Below is a statement from Eileen O’Connor, spokeswoman for the YES on Question 2 campaign. YES on 2 is ballot initiative campaign that seeks to increase the number of public charter schools in Massachusetts by lifting the cap placed by the State Legislature.
“The special interests opposing Question 2 have built a campaign founded on blatant and willful lies. This study, grounded by indisputable facts, clearly demonstrates that public charter schools have led to $85 million more in public education funding. Voters deserve to be told the truth – and the truth is that Question 2 will increase public education funding and give parents more opportunity to choose the best school for their kids,” said Eileen O’Connor of Great Schools Massachusetts.
