This proposed deal involving the Alma del Mar Charter School and the City of New Bedford is unacceptable. It fails to alleviate our most fundamental concern: The charter school will drain much-needed funds from the New Bedford Public Schools. We wish that state education officials would put half as much energy into supporting and funding our public schools as they put into finding new ways to force communities to accept —and pay for – privately run charter schools.
