More charters won’t solve what ails our schools
Nancy Carlsson-Paige writes: Many of the new charters will appear in low-income communities, where parents yearn for a better education for their children and where MCAS scores remain persistently low. But our schools and scores are not going to improve until we address the issues of rising child poverty and educational funding inequity. Adding new charter schools will not solve the problems that plague our public schools.
