Boston proposes combining charter, district enrollment applications

WBUR – September 17, 2015

“Boston students would be able to apply simultaneously to charter and district schools under a proposal that Mayor Marty Walsh plans to release Thursday.  It comes just as Boston students file a lawsuit to lift the charter cap in the state. Currently, families enter one lottery for district seats and another for each charter school they wish to apply to. Under the proposed system, families would enter the same home-based Boston Public Schools lottery for both public and charter schools.” [More.]
