The Reality of Charter School Funding in Massachusetts

Since 2005, MA has double-funded students in an attempt to curtail the impact of funding changes on traditional public schools.

Rather than make funding work more effectively for the students they serve, many traditional public school leaders have relied on funding for ghost students without accounting for the fact that they no longer serve them.

The effort by the Save our Public Schools campaign is anathema to the public interest and grossly misrepresents the reality of charter funding in MA.

The Bay State provides one of the most generous reimbursement plans in the nation when students choose to leave conventional schools for public charter schools.
