Public education advocates battle latest private school voucher scheme
Dick Yarbrough
Dear Georgia Public Schoolteachers: I have some good news and some maybe not-so-good news. First, the good news: After years of eye-pokes by the voucher-loving Kool-Aid drinkers in the General Assembly, you seem to have finally found your voice and as a result, one of the most egregious anti-public school voucher bills in recent memory was defeated in the state Senate. Senate Bill 173 would use taxpayer money — and lots of it — to allow students to walk away from public schools and attend private schools or be home-schooled.
