School Choice or Neighborhood Schools?
Patch would love to hear what you think on this week's question. Join in on the discussion.
Welcome to our latest installment of Moms Talk Q&A, through which you and your circle of friends are invited to offer your opinions and advice about issues that are of interest to families.
Each week in Moms Talk Framingham moms can debate an issue, ask a question, or become part of the conversation on a specific topic.
Framingham Patch's newly-formed Moms Council members will jump into the discussion or weigh in on a issue or help answer a question, as well.
As Framingham Patch is an interactive community new site, we want you to join in the discussion too. Don't be shy!
With the town election only a couple of week's away on April 5, I thought we could focus on a hot school issue that has been asked of the six candidates running for School Committee. Three seats are available on the seven-member board.
I also posed this questions as many new parents to the Framingham Public Schools are starting the school choice kindergarten process. As many of you know, it can be an overwhelming process.
Are you in favor of Framingham Public Schools current School Choice policy or would prefer neighborhood schools? Why?
Bonus question: If you favor neighborhood schools, how would you resolve the issue that a majority of the students live south of Route 9 but a majority of the 8 elementary schools are north of Route 9.
