During the ongoing GOP gubernatorial primary debate live on WSB-TV, Brian Kemp and David Perdue have made false claims in defense of their harmful actions politicizing kids’ education and attacking our teachers. However they attempt to spin the damage they’re inflicting, they can’t hide from the facts.
The anti-education bills Kemp pushed during Georgia’s legislative session, which Perdue also supports, have been staunchly opposed by educators, teachers, parents, and students — and come after a report last year showed one in four teachers are considering leaving the profession due to job-related stress.
Kemp has a long and abysmal record when it comes to supporting Georgia education. Over $10 billion has been cut from Georgia K-12 education in the last two decades, nearly $1 billion in funding for Georgia K-12 education was cut by Kemp in 2020 alone, and Georgia ranks 38th in the nation for per-student funding. But both Kemp and Perdue support policies that strip taxpayer funds from public schools and give them to private schools.
