  • Jim Lewis

    Let's not have for-profit elementary schools brought to us by the same people who brought us for-profit "college." Vote NO on the amendment!

  • Celia L. Murray

    For-profit companies running schools is a bad idea for Georgia's students. No doubt the companies awarded contracts to operate charter schools would be those with powerful political connections. Our children's education should not be for sale.

  • No To SIX

    The Charter School Amendment is the first step to turning our education system over to for-profit corporations and agenda-based private schools. Supporters of the Amendment include large corporations and Americans for Prosperity.
