Senator Robert Nichols' statement on SB 2
"I want to commend Senator Patrick on the work he has put into SB 2 relating to charter school expansion. In my district, most public schools receive less funding per student than charter schools statewide. Additionally, public schools have more rules and state regulations than charters. Unfortunately, SB 2 does not adequately address these two important issues. Until the playing field is leveled and school funding is addressed, I cannot support further charter expansion."
