    The Georgia Supreme Court stood by an earlier decision which deemed the Georgia Charter Schools Commission unconstitutional, a move which could potentially close the doors of at least 16 of the state’s charter schools.

    The Huffington Post reports:

    Supporters say charter schools provide more choices to families that feel underserved by local schools. Critics assert that charter schools sap local districts’ resources, outsource education into the hands of external organizations and do not serve high-needs populations.

    Several protests are set to take place on Thursday, organized by local advocacy groups and parents. The Supreme Court’s decision could force thousands of charter school students to find an alternative by the time school starts again in August.
