Georgia School Boards Asoociation Using Public Funds to Sway Votes?

What is the purpose of putting up audio of the Executive from the Georgia School Boards Association?  Well, if the group did not rely on public funding then it would not be a story.  Sis Henry and her posse can say all they want on their personal blogs and on Facebook, but according to Georgia's Attorney General it is illegal to use public funds to influence an election.  Your tax money is used to send school board members to the GSBA for workshops on various topics.  This audio is from a workshop on how to not allow school choice for parents and students.  The workshop's purpose was a step-by-step process to influence the November elections, specifically the Charter School Amendment.

According to the Bio for the GSBA Executive Director, she has been an advocate for children for 40 years. I don't doubt that a bit, but Sis Henry, let's make it 41 years by advocating for a YES vote on the Charter Amendment.  It is all about the children, right?

Sis Henry GSBA Against Charter School Competition

Audio recording of Executive of the Georgia School Board Association giving the game plan to school board members across the state.  Their goal is to limit choice, maintain their monopoly, and not to allow local parents and business owners to organize their own local board and charter school.

More audio files being processed for release on another media site.

Sis Henry GA School Board Exec Instructs No Vote on Charter Amendment

The Georgia School Board Association hosts a couple of conferences a year.  At the recent annual conference in Savannah, GA school board members from across the state go to Savannah and network and discuss school issues.  The school board members are there on taxpayer money. Here's a teaser of about an hour of audio from Sis Henry.  Sis Henry fears losing control and fears competition.  Sis Henry fears you, the informed voter.  Let's send Sis Henry a message this November.

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
