Proposed GA Constitutional Amendment Language
Georgia voters will be asked to make a constitutional amendment which would allow the creation of a state-run school district (the Opportunity School District or “OSD”). This district would be overseen by a superintendent appointed by and reporting to the governor.
The language that will appear on the ballot will lead voters to think that this action is needed to allow the state to address an on-going problem in Georgia’s schools:
Shall the constitution of Georgia be amended to allow the state to intervene in chronically failing public schools in order to improve student performance?
Review the OSD Study Guide
Georgia PTA has joined with many community and educational advocacy groups in opposing the Opportunity School District Amendment. The OSD language does not align with Georgia PTA legislative priorities because:
• Removes families from having a voice at their school,
• Leads to loss of local control over education policy and money,
• Places decision making for these schools with an appointed (not elected) official
• Unsuccessfully attempted in other States.
Please contact us if you would like to be an advocate on this issue!
