Important Election Issue: Amendment 1 – Evaluating the Governor’s Opportunity School District Proposal

Educate yourself before you vote!

Amendment 1 on the Georgia ballot in November proposes to create an “Opportunity School District” (OSD) to take over “failing” local schools. OSD would be run by a superintendent appointed by the Governor and accountable only to the Governor.

Is OSD a good idea? What are the ramifications for students, teachers, parents, and local control of education?

Come hear perspectives from Margaret Ciccarelli of the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE) and Jane Robbins of the American Principles Project (APP).
