Do our lawmakers lack faith in states public school systems? - The Times-Herald
The Georgia Senate has tabled a new school voucher bill for now. In short, there will be no expansion of the program this year. What this proposed expansion of the program tells voters about the politicians they send to Atlanta is indeed alarming, regardless of how one feels about vouchers. It tells them that politicians are not overly concerned about balancing the state budget during a tough economic time. Even more frightening than all of that is what it tells counties and cities in Georgia about their public school systems. The state General Assembly has absolutely no faith in them and is ready and eager to provide students and their families bailout packages, courtesy of taxpayers.
