FROM: NAACP DEKALB COUNTY GEORGIA BRANCH
RE: VOTE “NO” NOVEMBER 6, 2012 AGAINST STATE CONTROLLED PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOLS
The NAACP, DeKalb County Georgia Branch executive committee meeting held on Monday, August 27, 2012 approved a “NO” vote to the Charter school amendment on the November 6, 2012 ballot.
The NAACP DeKalb County Georgia Branch found the amendment to be confusing and misleading. A “NO” vote means local control of public Charter schools not state control of Charter public schools.
Please remember this “vote” has nothing to do with abolishing Charter Schools. It gives us local control as long as we have Charter Schools.
For further information, please call the Branch office at (404) 241-8006 or (404) 213-8510.
