The student video posted last week has already been viewed more than 6,200 times and featured by the AJC’s Maureen Downey, national education expert Diane Ravitch and The American Prospect, along with hundreds of Facebook posts, shares and likes.
The out-of-state corporate ‘Yes’ donors are losing steam quickly on this issue.
The reason Georgia voters are rejecting the big-dollar ‘Yes’ campaign is because all of their arguments promote a system of school choice that we already have today.
Georgia has more than 200 charter schools and an effective appeals process.
The only things new about Amendment 1 are higher costs and an unnecessary state bureaucracy filled with Gov. Deal’s political cronies.
We don’t need to change our constitution so out-of-state charter corporations can make a profit off our students.
A ‘No’ vote on Amendment 1 will keep Georgia’s constitution the way it is today and allow us to focus on improving education for every student.
P.S.Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton gave $250,000 to fund the telephone calls and yard signs you’re hearing and seeing from the ‘Yes’ campaign. Walton's big contribution has been combined with money from out-of-state charter school corporations that hope to profit by managing the new schools. Please donate to Better Georgia now so we can continue to educate voters about why a ‘No’ vote is so important. Every dollar helps. Donate now.
