Board Approves Resolution in Support of Public Education

Board Approves Resolution in Support of Public Education

 

HOUSTON COUNTY, GA – During the Oct. 16, 2012, Board meeting, Houston County Board of Education Board members approved a resolution in support of quality public education.  The resolution is in response to a constitutional amendment on the Nov. 6, 2012, general election ballot as a result of House Resolution 1162.  If Amendment 1 is approved, it would authorize the legislature and governor to establish a state committee with the power to approve applications for charter schools that have been rejected by local school boards, deteriorating local control.  It would also result in less money for traditional public schools and therefore larger classes, less instructional days for students and less pay for teachers.
