We just got word that the group in opposition to Amendment One, Keep Our Schools Local, has snagged the support of former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young. From the press release:

Former Atlanta mayor, U.N. Ambassador and civil rights icon Andrew Young will announce his
opposition to Amendment 1 and the importance of voting in a press conference on Tuesday,
alongside special guests.

Amendment One is a proposed constutional amendment that would permit the state to assume control of individual schools that are chronically failing.
