The Newton School Committee passed a resolution to oppose the Charter School Ballot Question (Question 2) last week but it not unanimous, The TAB’s Laura Lovett reports.
School Committee members Margie Ross Decter, Ruth Goldman, Diana Fisher Gomberg, and Angela Pitter-Wright and Mayor Setti Warren voted in favor. Chairman Matt Hills and members Steve Siegel and Ellen Gibson voted against the resolution. Margret Albright abstained.
Will the School Committee’s endorsement — or the opposition from Hills, Siegel and Gibson — sway your vote?
Or do you agree with Albright who said:
“We are being dragged into something that is divisive and not productive,” said Albright, who preferred for the committee to not take a vote on the ballot question.
