Amendment 1 will authorize the Georgia state government to take over failing elementary and secondary schools. The Amendment would allow the state to create an "Opportunity School District" that would take over control of 100 failing schools. Proponents include Governor Nathan Deal. Opponents include teachers' unions who argue that the proposal is a power grab by the state and will turn more public schools into charter schools.  See recent Amendment 1 news
