Marlborough Once the fifth-leading shoe manufacturing city in the United States, Marlborough is now the home of the Frye Boot Company, the Digital Equipment Corporation, Raytheon Corporation, and smaller electronics, shoe and paperbox manufacturing companies. And the inexpensive commercial property continues to draw new businesses here. Most recently, a branch of the John Hancock Insurance Company and a sprawling new industrial park were built here. All this development has brought an influx of people to this town that was once an Indian plantation. Since 1965, the population has grown about 35% to 32,000. But there's no chance the city will be overrun by rampant industrialization as the city's master plan reflects controlled growth. A "High Tech" community with quality residential neighborhoods, apartment complexes and condominiums, and a variety of apartment complexes, with styles ranging from mock Tudor to modern, have sprung up recently to accommodate all the new residents. Single family houses embody all traditional New England styles, from colonial to ranch, and new homes being built this year start at $185,000. The town has a stable tax rate which has even decreased recently. Industrial development and housing have not taken up all the hills and dales, though. The city's outer belt has much undeveloped land, some working farms, a picturesque reservoir, and 71 acres of woodlands for conservation and recreation. Marlborough is conveniently located near 3 major highways and the junction of 2 interstate roads, Route 495 and the Massachusetts Turnpike. Boston is a 35-minute drive, Worcester is 16 miles away, and Route 128 industrial belt is also nearby. It is, as some describe, in the heart of the opportunity belt. Many Marlborough residents commute by bus or train to Boston from Framingham, only 6 miles away.

Constitutional amendment blocks reform
By Fredrik Stanton
November 1, 1999
The drive for school choice that is sweeping the nation is beginning to take root in Massachusetts. A suit on behalf of three mothers challenging the Anti-Aid Amendment to the State Constitution is currently pending in U.S. District Court. The amendment prohibits the use of any public funds for private and parochial schools, and is the biggest barrier to meaningful school choice in the Commonwealth.
The Anti-Aid Amendment is also under attack via the initiative petition route. Although using the process to challenge the amendment was specifically prohibited when initiative petitions were adopted in 1917, an injunction granted as part of the pending lawsuit has cleared the way for the petition drive that is currently underway to collect the signatures necessary to force a ballot initiative on the amendment.
Last April, over 1.25 million under-privileged families applied for scholarships from the Children's Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance for poor families to attend the private school - including parochial schoolsof their choice. This "million parent march" was a stunning repudiation of the status quo by those with a direct and highly personal stake in the success of our K-12 school systemparents.
As various attempts to improve public schools have been tried and failed over the past several years, an alternative model is achieving success. In poor neighborhoods where parents are most dissatisfied with the public schools to which they are compelled to send their children, low-cost private and parochial schools are delivering stunning results. Inner-city private schools in Washington, D.C. have a 99 percent graduation rate, as opposed to less than 53 percent for the District's public schools. The benefits cut across racial lines as well. An African-American or Hispanic child from any private school is 37 percent more likely to complete college than a white student from a public school. Not surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of applicants to the Children's Scholarship Fund were minorities.

Survey of Massachusetts Residents Shows Clear Majority Supports School Choice
October 1996
Reasons for Survey
In July, 1996, Opinion Dynamics Corporation of Cambridge designed and conducted a telephone poll for Pioneer Institute of 800 Massachusetts residents on the subject of parental choice in education. In general, polls on parental choice are commissioned by advocates for one side or the other. The questions asked in these polls are inevitably slanted to produce the "right" answer, desired by the organization paying the bill. For example, opponents of parental choice often ask questions like this one: "Do you favor or oppose allowing students and parents to choose a private school to attend at public expense?" This question suggests a zero-sum game in which the "public" is, almost by definition, made worse off . When this kind of question is asked, it predictably produces large majorities against school choice.
Pioneer Institute is an advocate for more parental choice in education. At the same time, we are a research organization whose credibility depends on our commitment to honest scholarship. With that reputation in mind, we set out to commission a poll on parental choice that would ask honest, unbiased questions. Based on anecdotal evidence, we were confident the survey would support our position, but we were willing to take the chance that it would not.
The timing of the survey was based on two considerations. First, it was our hope that reliable opinion data might help candidates for political office take notice of the growing enthusiasm for expanded choice. We have long felt that many officials at both the state and local level are out of sync with their constituents on this issue. A well-timed poll prior to an election might help make parental choice a serious topic of discussion on the campaign trail and serve to better align legislators with the voters.

The Coalition for Parental Choice in Education (CPCE) was formed in 1996 by a diverse group of individuals who came together to implement a conviction that they all sharednamely, that K through 12 education in America could be improved by giving parents a greater array of choices for their children.
That original founding group included a black woman who had formerly been a public school teacher; a home-schooling father; an Asian woman who had been an active participant in the movement to bring charter schools to Massachusetts; parents of children in Catholic schools; a Jewish father of children in public schools; libertarians and public policy specialists; and both advocates forand opponents ofschool vouchers.
With these scholarships, most parents were able to find good, low-cost schools for their children. Some children were accepted at more expensive private schools that supplemented the scholarships with financial aid in order to increase the racial and economic diversity of their student body.

PROMISES TO KEEP (continued) Something Different
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who would like "to make every public school in this country essentially a charter school within the public school system," elaborated on the themes of choice and competition in an October 1998 speech: Although diverse as a group, virtually all charter schools in Massachusetts have a single unifying mission or focus that lends coherence to the school and attracts like-minded teachers, parents, and students. City On A Hill Charter School in Boston, for example, has a strong civic focus that includes student participation in weekly town meetings. Pioneer Valley Charter School in Hadley integrates performing arts into the regular curriculum. The Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School provides a college prep program for high school dropouts. And Community Day Charter School in Lawrence has adopted standards of the Modern Red School House, a comprehensive design for school restructuring sponsored by the New American Schools.

Carla Howell's Education Proposal
August 17, 2002
    Below is an issue of the "Small Government News" reposted in it's entirety. Here in Massachusetts, things are a mess. Most of the candidates for governor think the answer to everything is to throw money at it and raise taxes to fund it. This goes for everything from education to roads etc...Carla Howell is the ONLY candidate saying something different. Get government out of our lives and wallets.
    In Massachusetts we have a neighbor to the North called New Hampshire. We only need to take a peek over the border for an example of what can be done without income tax and sales tax. New Hampshire is a beautiful State. They stand behind their motto "Live Free or Die." New Hampshire's roads are beatiful and the mountains and beachfront is gorgeous. In Massachusetts we are saddled with an eyesore called "The Big Dig"
    Take a look at this Ediucation Proposal by Carla Howell. This puts things in the proper perspective.

School Vouchers: Voters Say No . . .
by Albert Menendez and Edd Doerr Regardless of how the U.S. Supreme Court rules in the Cleveland school voucher case this year, the voucher issue will continue to play a role in the political process. Just about every state legislature and Congress could see battles over proposals to drain the public treasury to support nonpublic schools’ under the guise of parental choice. And hard-pressed public schools will be caught in the crossfire as they try to maintain adequate levels of funding to educate 90% of this country’s children. N THE 2000 ELECTIONS voters in two large and important states, California and Michigan, overwhelmingly rejected voucher schemes in statewide referenda. These voters handed advocates of public aid to private and parochial schools their 23rd and 24th defeats in 25 elections held in 14 states since 1966. The California vote was 71% to 29% against Proposition 38, an elaborate voucher proposal that would have cost at least $2.4 billion and would have required the state to give a $4,000 annual voucher to any parent, rich or poor, to send a child to a private school. No accountability for the expenditures and carte blanche for private school religious and gender discrimination were parts of the plan. Californians of every demographic group and regional location voted against the plan, including 66% of Catholic voters. Even rural, white “interior California” counties that voted heavily for George W. Bush for president opposed the initiative.
