State Board votes
Houston County Courier

The State Board of Education on July 23 voted 7-6 to allow up to $100 million of the Permanent School Fund to be used to build or buy buildings the state could lease to charter schools. But the funds could only be used that way with approval from the attorney general or after passage of a new legislation. Presently, the Permanent School Fund, which is currently worth about $22 billion, may only be used to purchase textbooks and other instructional materials.
