'Georgia is in a unique situation as its citizens head to the polls, whether or not to give the state the power to take over so-called failing schools. They have clear examples of what doesn’t work! Louisiana is exiting the achievement district business at the same time Milwaukee rejected this model in order to commit to creating more Community Schools. No matter what they try to tell you, the Achievement School District in Tennessee has been an unmitigated failure. The only thing the ASD has been successful at is creating another government entity rife with financial mismanagement as they constantly change goals\. As more and more eyes are waking up to the power of community schools, Georgia voters need to ask themselves if they want to be at the back of the train or at the front.'
