Sen. Chang-Diaz Remains Hopeful Regarding Charter School Bill

BOSTON — Legislation that would raise the number of charter schools allowed in Boston and other Massachusetts school districts is stalling on Beacon Hill.

The charter school cap was a major issue in the Boston mayor’s race, but now, as lawmakers face a deadline next week, it appears unlikely a bill will make it to the full Legislature for a vote.

Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz of Boston, co-chairwoman of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education, joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to discuss the charter school issue.
