Georgia Charter School Amendment Discussion

Curious to what all the fuss is about in regards to a ballot question on changing the State Constitution?  If yes, then Thursday, October 4th, is a day to hear a discussion on it.

I look forward to hearing the panel, including the PTA speaker.  This promises to be more informative than a zoning meeting or a council meeting so attendance is suggested.

Dunwoody Chamblee Parents' Council (DCPC) and State Representative Tom Taylor are co-hosting a Discussion Panel on the Charter School Amendment. 

When:  Thursday, October 4, 2012, Meet & Greet at 9:15 AM, Program will run from 9:30 to 10:30 AM
Where:  Dunwoody Public Library 
What:  Legislative Panel to discuss Pros and Cons of the Charter School Amendment  (Ballot issue on November 6th Election)
Pro: State Representative Jan Jones, Speaker Pro-Tempore of the House and author of the legislation, and State Representative Mike Dudgeon, past Forsyth County BOE member, to speak on behalf of the amendment.

Con: State Senator Nan Orrock and Sally Fitzgerald, Georgia PTA to speak against the amendment. 

Moderator: State Representative Tom Taylor
