Opportunity School District: Just Vote No Georgia voters will be asked to approve a constitutional amendment that would allow the creation of a state-run school district. A superintendent appointed by the governor would oversee this district. In addition, the language that will appear on the ballot is misleading. Make it simple: just vote no. To learn more, watch the video.
