Join parents, teachers, and communities across the state working to Keep Georgia Schools Local.
Amendment 1 is a state government political takeover of our public schools that gives absolute power to a hand-picked political appointee and out-of- state, for-profit corporations that could run our schools.
What is in the fine print? Amendment 1 will result in a wholesale sell-off of our children’s education and won’t improve our public schools. It is a power grab by bureaucrats and out-of-state special interests.
Teachers, PTAs, educators and local community leaders from across Georgia oppose this approach. Lobbyists and out-of-state corporations support it, and yet local taxpayers will have to pay the bill.
Amendment 1 robs struggling schools of desperately needed funds and takes away $13 million from education statewide to make us pay for a whole new layer of bureaucracy.
