A metro Atlanta issue has found its way to the back steps of area schoolhouses.
The Georgia School Boards Association has presented a resolution to school boards statewide for consideration that would show support for three school systems that are challenging the ability of the Georgia Charter Schools Commission to allocate educational funding to individual charter schools without the approval of the local school board.
“In response to several inquiries from the GSBA membership, a sample resolution supporting those boards in litigation was drafted and sent to each school board,” said Don Rooks, GSBA director of legislative services.
Local school boards don’t just dislike the funding issues involved. They don’t like charter schools because those schools present a challenge to the monopoly of government run schools.
