Georgia Fraud: Money Behind the Vote to Create a Phony Opportunity School District; by Diane Ravitch w Jack HansardQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink

Revealed:Top down doom for Georgia's public schools In this post, is the twisted trail of big-money behind Governor Deal’s push to privatize public schools, and create a money pot for entrepreneurs. He is pulling the wool over the eyes of the public with an ALEC-inspired program to erode local control and expand privatization. Governor Deal’s constitutional amendment ballotasks voters "whether the state should have the authority to intervene to help failing schools, yes or no." The real purpose of this Orwellian ballot, is to create a special non-contiguous district consisting of the state’s lowest performing schools. They will be removed from their district and handed over to state control. The state will then transfer them to charter chains. Gov. Deal is taking advantage of the Supreme Court’s horrendous Citizens United decision that removed limits on political contributions.
