Look you can start a charter school by presenting a plan to the local board of education. Of the 315 charter schools in Georgia 94 percent were approved by their local boards. We do NOT need to change the constitution to allow a charter school commission that is redundant and make government bigger!
Before next football season, the Boys & Girls Club needs to make sure that the volunteer coaches know how dangerous it is to jerk a child up quickly after he’s taken a hard hit. I realize some kids lay there for the attention and drama but others are really stunned and need a minute to recover. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
I like local control. I like elected members of the community deciding what is best for the kids in our schools. I can call and talk to my board of education members. I can go to their meetings and speak to them publicly. The charter school commission amendment takes the power away from my local board and sends my money and their power to Atlanta.
There sure are a lot of people with negative opinions about public education. I’m willing to bet these same people have not, nor do they plan to, visit or volunteer at a local school. I invite you to spend some time in a classroom with a teacher who fosters a positive learning environment by challenging students academically and encouraging them to mature into young ladies and gentlemen with a bright future. Come visit us at JLN; you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
