The letter expresses worry about charter schools expanding into areas where they do not exist now and taking millions away from successful neighborhood public schools. By definition Southbridge does not have successful neighborhood public schools because the Southbridge public schools failed and were placed into State receivership. Yet, Southbridge families did not have convenient access to charter schools as an alternative as the public schools failed. Shouldn't Southbridge families have the same access to educational alternatives as families in other parts of the state have?
