A public hearing about the proposed Somerville Progressive Charter School happens this Wednesday, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. inside the auditorium at Somerville High School. The hearing, organized by the state's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, provides people with an opportunity to voice their opinion about the school.
We at Somerville Patch would like to know where you stand on this issue, so we invite you to take our poll and elaborate on your choice in the comments section.
If you want to learn more about the Somerville Progressive Charter School, read our coverage of the School Committee and Board of Aldermen's opposition to it. You can also read a Q&A with a member of the founding group and another interview with a leader of a group opposed to the charter school.
Also, on Somerville-4-Schools, a message board for parents and others to discuss education issues in the city, there have been discussions about the matter in recent weeks.
