Atlanta Charter School Debate Heats Up

Talk of charter schools will heat up, as the November Georgia General Elections get closer because the ballot will include a referendum question about the State Board of Education’s authority to grant charters. In the meantime, there is a debate brewing in Atlanta about the Charles Drew Charter School. The East Lake Community has written an open letter to their School Board representative.

Here is the link to the letter.

The Atlanta Public Schools granted Drew its first charter a dozen years ago. Since the 1990’s APS has granted other charters. Drew is located in the East Lake Community.
