A poll paid for by a group promoting a charter school constitutional amendment has found that nearly 60 percent of Georgians support the ballot question. Voters will decide in November whether the state should have the power to approve charter schools even if a local board disagrees.
Georgia schools would be given letter grades based on how their students perform under a bill being considered by state lawmakers. The legislation is modeled after a similar system in Florida created by former Gov. Jeb Bush.
