Forum Scheduled to Discuss Georgia Charter School Amendment

Do you know how you’ll vote on the Georgia charter school amendment?

This November, you will be asked whether the state of Georgia should be allowed to authorize new charter schools (as opposed to school districts only). The AJC’s latest poll shows voters are split, and people on both sides of the issue agree this vote will determine the path of K-12 education reform in Georgia for years to come.

You are invited to attend a public forum with prominent speakers on both sides of the debate, to learn more about the issue. The forum will be held Monday, October 22, 6:00 p.m. at the Inman Middle School auditorium.

Young Professionals for Education Equity (YPEE) and Teach For America are co-sponsoring this nonpartisan event. Amir Farokhi of GeorgiaForward will moderate the discussion.

Panel speakers include:

Jason Carter, Georgia State Senator

Mike Dudgeon, Georgia State Representative

Herb Garrett, Executive Director, Georgia School Superintendents Association

Mark Peevy, Executive Director, Georgia Charter Schools Commission
