Ga. parent urges vote against charter school amendment
Placeholder Image
I join concerned parents throughout Georgia who support our Republican State School Superintendent in opposing the creation of a costly new government bureaucracy that will take away true local control in the way we educate our kids. Now there is no question that the quality of education in existing public schools in Georgia could be improved or that current school systems could operate more effectively. My problem with the proposed constitutional amendment creating an appointed statewide commission to authorize new charter schools is simply that it fails to provide the right fix for our educational shortcomings.
