The Charter School Amendment in Georgia

Education March to the Georgia Capitol Nov. 2nd, 2012
In Georgia this Tuesday, citizens will vote on a constitutional amendment that reads:
Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon request of local communities?

UPDATE:

The Charter School Amendment to the Georgia constitution passed with overwhelming support across the state: 58.5%.  

Because the Charter School Amendment in Georgia passed on November 6th, 2012, the Charter School Commission will return as an independent authorizer for public charter schools.  The Commission serves as an appeals process for communities and parents who petition their local school board for a public charter school first.
