Communications Lessons from Massachusetts Question 2: The Charter Debate

More than $40 million spent, millions of voters mobilized, and the direction of millions in education funding at stake – Massachusetts’ 2016 Question 2 ballot campaign broke the mold in many ways. Each side engaged prominent policymakers, unleashed impressive field strategies, and carefully crafted message frames to make their case. In the end, the lopsided rejection of the expansion of charter schools in the Commonwealth surprised many. So what can Boston-area communications professionals learn from what happened?

Join senior education reporter Tonya Mosley who will moderate a  panel conversation diving into how that public conversation played out, the messages that shaped public opinion, and the strategies that worked best (or worst).
