Voters in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia have approved a constitutional amendment that gives the state more authority to create and approve charter schools. The amendment, which had strong support and opposition, passed by a 58-to-42 margin on Election Night.

Supporters of the measure argued that its passage would mean more opportunities for children, while opponents claimed that it would re-segregate Georgia’s schools and deplete resources for the state’s public schools.

The new charter school’s commission is expected to begin early next year.
