Gov. Deal signs bills needed for takeover of failing schools | Online Athens

ATLANTA — Gov. Nathan Deal has signed a bill authorizing a state takeover of what he calls “chronically failing schools,” setting up a vote on a constitutional amendment needed to enact the new policy.

To the cheers of legislators as well as charter school students and their parents from the Utopian Academy for the Arts in Clayton County, Deal said Tuesday in the Capitol that his actions are aimed at implementing an Opportunity School District to turn around failing schools.
