Harwich, home to Andrea Silbert, gets a pittance in local aid. For an enrollment of 1,532 students, the state sends $1,562,804 to Harwich for their schools, or $1020 per pupil.
Under the existing charter school cap, the current charter school cap for Harwich is $1,509,527 for 149 students.
If Harwich reaches the cap, the local aid remaining for Harwich would be $53,927. At the cap, charter operators would get 96.6% of Harwich’s school aid. Only 3.4% remains in town. Andrea Silbert wants to raise the cap.
Wipe out state aid for Harwich. More money for private charter operators. What are her priorities?
Too much ain’t enough?
