Bernie Sanders Jumps Into Massachusetts’s Charter School Fight, Opposes Question 2

Bernie Sanders says he opposes the Massachusetts ballot question to raise the charter school cap, in what is one of Question 2 opponents’ most high-profile, if not particularly surprising, endorsements. Inserting himself into the state politics of his southerly neighbor, the popular Vermont senator said in a statement Monday that the campaign supporting Question 2 was being backed by Wall Street hedge fund managers and, if passed, the measure would drain resources from public schools.
