More control from Atlanta may not be the “cure” some think it is.
Upset about his lack of authority in Clayton County, Gov. Sonny Perdue is looking at a possible change to the state constitution to allow Georgia to intervene more with troubled school systems.
“The governor would be willing — even if it took a constitutional change — to give the state authority to get more involved in a situation like this,” said Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley on Wednesday. “The frustration the people are feeling of the state’s inability to go in and give the state more of a role is something he’s been thinking about.”
