Just this morning, a coalition of parents, teachers and communities launched the first anti-Opportunity School District TV ad campaign in an effort to educate voters on the truth about the school takeover amendment.
Too few Georgia voters know that the cost of Amendment 1 will be huge.
In fact, hardly anyone has realized yet that the school takeover amendment would allow the state government to skim up to 3 percent “for administrative operations.”
Amendment 1 robs struggling schools of desperately needed funds and takes away $13 million from education statewide.
Instead of investing in smaller class sizes, good teachers, and more resources for learning, Amendment 1 cuts money from local schools to make us pay for a whole new set of bureaucrats and an unaccountable political appointee.
Georgia can’t afford this costly school takeover.
