Although we agree with MDJ columnist Dick Yarbrough, the Legislature has a trust issue with the public on how it handles fee revenues (“No one trusts the Georgia Legislature ... not even God,” April 4), lumping charter schools into that argument is invalid.
The average citizen can’t directly control how the state spends its money, but if the state is allowed to authorize public charter schools on the upcoming ballot in November, parents will get more control over their children’s education. This is about giving parents more public school choices.
Every child is unique and every parent deserves to choose what public school is right for their child. Who do you trust more: parents or the Legislature?
