Sen. Lindsey Tippins, left, R-Marietta, congratulates Rep. Kevin Tanner, R - Dawsonville, the House sponsor of the bill, after passage of House Bill 338 on the Senate floor Friday in Atlanta. The Georgia Senate on Friday approved legislation that empowers the state to intervene in the lowest-performing schools. House Bill 338 requires that school districts authorize intervention or face financial consequences associated with the "flexibility" contracts they've signed with the Georgia Department of Education. The state House, in a followup vote on Tuesday, sent the bill to Gov. Nathan Deal for his review.
