Tanner bill for failing schools passes House
Placeholder Image
A bill that is expected to help turn around low-performing schools in Georgia passed last week in a 138-37 vote by the Georgia House of Representatives. House Bill 338 was presented by Rep. Kevin Tanner, R-Dawsonville, who has been working on the bill as an alternative to the failed Opportunity School District amendment in the fall. The legislation, as Tanner has described it, attempts to incentivize local school systems to cooperate with the state to help their schools get better as well as hold them accountable.
