30% raise on property taxes?

Thank You to the patriots that stood up for the hard working, taxed enough already, citizens of Douglas County. Still time to make one more public meeting! Lets be sure the BOC is tightening their belts with the rest of us. http://m.douglasco untysentinel.com/m obile/news/local/a rticle_c51278c4-e8 ff-11e2-8fb1-001a4 bcf6878.html  (Jul 10, 2013 | post #9)

Charter Schools Amendment

Hey all "no" voters... Does it not concern you that your "local control" BOE has sold you out to the federal government by advocating and pushing free and reduced lunch in order to access additional monies to implement more failed educational policies? It is happening all across America. Perhaps the TEA Party could look into that. SELL OUTS! Where is the self reliance that built this nation? Not only do "some" SORRY welfare recipients receive food stamps, they also get a pass on fixing their child's lunch with government provided food. So taxpayers get to pay the bill again. We pay for the food and the labor to prepare it. I have a hard time understanding why over 60% of our students receive free or reduced lunch yet the average median income in Douglas Co. is 50k a year? It does not add up. Someone is either lying about their income or has been told to lie about their income in order to receive these services. At some point the government will run out of other people's money, YOUR MONEY, and then you will be wishing perhaps individuals would have taken a better look at the stats Ms. Cadman has shared With us. That more would have realized what truly was at stake and the waste and ideals that you covenant in the end, lead to the break down of our society and economic sustainability. Or perhaps your own government educating does not allow you to rationalize and think for yourself! It's easier to let someone do the work for you than actually decipher the info yourself. Sheeps!! Take off the beer goggles and look at where Ga education really is today. In my opinion access to more money is the reason. Rewarded for failing. That's not an American ideal...  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #220)

Charter Schools Amendment

Another layer of Government!?! The local boards authority is only on loan from the state!! Ms. Cadman is correct in saying with the local school boards you only get 1 vote every 4 years. Charter School Boards, which are made up of parents, educators and community volunteers have direct control of their schools!! They are not micro managed from afar. They are able to govern in a manor that has direct and immediate impacts on their schools. Parents and teachers alike take full ownership of the education process and are involved in EVERY step of the process. Their input is valued! Not just tolerated or dismissed. Only if you are a parent or educator of influence will the BOE pay any attention to you. Real Local control is when parents and educators work together to achieve a successful learning environment for students.  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #129)

Charter Schools Amendment

I will be voting YES!! Yes to more school choice options for taxpayers Yes to better accountability and transparency Yes to more fiscal accountability of taxpayer money Yes to raising the bar in Ga. Yes to a proven alternative to the traditional "one size fits all education" that allows so many Ga students to fall thru the cracks Yes to better test scores Yes to more college prepared students Yes to a more efficient educational experience for all Georgians Yes to more innovative teacher environments I'm sure you get the picture, Crabass  (Oct 1, 2012 | post #23)
