A group of Georgia taxpayers announced they have sued the Fulton County School System and the Gwinnett School District.
The group wants to immediately stop Georgia from using taxpayer funds to campaign against Amendment One, the charter school amendment of the Nov. 6 ballot.
The parents and taxpayers are represented by Attorney Glenn Delk.
Delk said his clients have evidence that in June, the GSBA held a training meeting attended by board members funded by taxpayers on how to defeat the Amendment.
Delk claims to have an audio copy of the meeting.
Delk also said in August, State Supt. John Barage issued a press release with anti-Amendment material. He used state resources to disseminate the material to all the school districts and posted the materials on the official DOE website.
"My clients have reluctantly sued to stop the school districts from using some of the $18.5B taxpayers spend annually on K-12 education, not to educate children, but to conduct an illegal political campaign to return their monopoly control over the money," said Delk.
