Group Collects 20,000 Signatures to Get Charter Schools Expansion on Ballot

Great Schools Massachusetts, the business-backed group behind a ballot initiative to expand charter schools, yesterday delivered more than 20,000 signatures to the secretary of state’s office in support of a ballot question to expand access to public charter schools in Massachusetts — more than twice the amount required of the certification process.

“Along with numerous public polls, this is further evidence of the strong support from voters in the commonwealth to expand access to high quality public charter schools,” said GSM spokeswoman Eileen O’Connor.
