Yarbrough: Hypocrisy reigns in charter amendment fight
Placeholder Image
Rep. Edward Lindsey, R-Atlanta, majority whip in the Georgia House of Representatives, says he finds himself bordering between “amused and disturbed” by opponents of the charter school amendment, which is set for a vote on Nov. 6. Specifically, he doesn’t like the assertion that the state school board retains the power to overrule on appeal a local school board’s decision to deny a charter school after the Supreme Court’s ruling on the subject in May 2011. He said he would appreciate my “correcting” my previous comments on that point.
