MA Board of Education Approves 4 New Charter Schools

As previously posted, Ed Commissioner Chester Mitchell recommended the approval of four new charter schools from a field which included six final round applicants. Today (2/28) the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to grant charters to the founders of the proposed new schools. Two of the schools (Dudley Street Neighborhood School, Boston and the Paulo Freire Social Justice School, Holyoke) will open in the fall of 2012 while the other two (Baystate Academy, Springfield and Collegiate Charter of Lowell) will open in 2013.
