The next district that Commissioner Chester appears to be eying for state takeover is Holyoke. Note that the state already has brought in a receiver at Dean Technical High School in Holyoke, which hasn't been successful (at least by state measures). Parents thus are asking why it is that the state thinks it can somehow improve the entire district.
Watch this one. Having the state takeover districts under the theory that they can somehow do it better is a terribly disturbing trend.
