In Massachusetts, where residents will soon vote in a referendum on whether to allow the creation of more charter schools, pro-charter groups are running tv ads including the one shown above. According to the Boston Globe, the groups are spending $2.3 million to run the ads in August.

Opponents of charter schools are also running ads. You can view one here.

For background information on this dispute, you can read an article Jim Peyser wrote for EdNext in 2014, “Boston and the Charter Cap.”
