In less than two weeks, voters will decide if Georgia can create a state commission authorizing charter schools.
The issue has stirred controversy all across metro Atlanta. Some Democratic leaders are calling the ballot biased and misleading. Others, however, are reaching across political aisles to support the amendment. On Saturday, Oct. 27, two state lawmakers - one Republican, the other a Democrat - are headlining a rally in support of the amendment.
State Sen. Jason Carter, who represents some of Decatur under the Gold Dome, is outspoken in his opposition to the measure.
Some parents who support charter schools are running into opposition in their respective PTAs. One DeKalb County mom said national PTA leaders support charter schools, but is frustrated by Georgia PTA's opposition to them.
So our question to you is: do you support charter schools? Should Georgia be allowed to create a commission authorizing them, or should these decisions remain at the local school-board level?
