A warning about a Georgia constitutional amendment on the November ballot  to allow the state to cancel local control. This is Governor Deal's so-called Opportunity School District modeled on Tennessee's failed Achievement School District. Read the language of the amendment:Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow the state to intervene in chronically failing public schools in order to improve student performance? What is the amendment really proposing? Let the state take control of schools away from their local school district and give them to failed out-of-state corporate charter chains.  What will happen if this amendment is passed:'20 public schools will be pulled from their districts, and forced to adhere to a system of education  akin to a boot camp style of education in which students are trained to take tests & jump hurdles that have little to do with learning.
