As was previously noted on PeachPundit and other news sources, State Senator Eric Johnson is pushing school vouchers on the 2009 legislature, possibly as a way to attempt to become the GOP’s candidate for Lieutenant Governor in 2010.
David Poythress, the former Adjutant General of Georgia, and declared candidate for Governor in 2010 wants it to be known that he opposes Johnson’s plan.
“To re-direct public money from public education into unregulated private entities with the magical expectation that somehow the private sector was going to remedy all the education problems in the state — that’s just wrong. It’s not going to happen,” Poythress said.
“I wouldn’t say that there’s absolutely no voucher system that would ever work. I would say that the one he is proposing is very, very unworkable. And in my judgment, extremely counterproductive.”
