The state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in Massachusetts on Tuesday did not act to intervene in the state's decision to deny a plan to expand the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School in Malden. Officials from the school say they will take the state to court over new requirements the school expand its board and set term limits. "Public schools have elected boards, so there is a level of accountability. There is nothing like that in charter school boards, so we have to act on the public's behalf," deputy education commissioner Jeff Wulfson said.
