Far-out ideologues want to destroy public education in Georgia
By ELLIOTT BRACK

OCT. 12, 2012 -- Let’s take a moment and consider what a charter school essentially is.
It is not like regular public schools. While charter school funding comes from public sources, charter schools essentially are public versions of private schools. If Amendment One passes next month, that could upend public education in Georgia.
As we approach the Nov. 6th general election, Georgians will be asked to make their voices heard on a number of important issues. From the President of the United States to local government representatives, voters will head to the polls to determine who will make governmental decisions on their behalf.
